Nobody ever said you couldn't use quilt inside a svn working copy. If
you're working on multiple features and don't want multiple WCs, it
might not be a bad arrangement. quilt seamlessly handles multiple
changesets that touch the same file, something svn changelists will
never be good at.

The chief annoyance with quilt is that you have to warn it that you
intend to edit a file. (See related flamage in the p4 thread a few
days ago.) If quilt could detect that it's in a svn working copy, it
could avoid the need for this, as the pristine files are already
available (using 'svn cat' if nothing else).
