Yeah, i don't get the "mildly annoying" workaround either.
I use it to work on multiple changes in my gcc trees and manage them
all the time using this.
The only workaround i can see would be have more checked out trees, at
another 2 gig a pop.
I've already got 6.
Each probably has 3-4 changelists in it (they get moved to a temporary
tree when they are ready in order to do truly clean testing).

That's not only a disk space increase, it's also a factor of 3 work
increase in keeping these trees up-to-date and doing quick testing on
it. Now i've got to run the testsuite 18-24 times to get any coverage
at all of every patch, instead of 6 times.
