svn diff + patch, give or take any property edits? I constantly have
multiple patches-in-progress in my working copies, too, but a) manage
them just fine with 'svn diff' and patch, and b) always feel kinda
naughty, like I'm violating a best practice, for not keeping my tree
limited to a single changeset at a time.

input I was hoping to get from this query.
