Yeah, that is one way I'm using SVK, and I even added a --review option
so you can --lump all of your local changes and edit the combined commit
message to be sensible. There are strong reasons why visibility is good
for a project as a while and other strong reasons why quiet internal
contemplation is better for the individual developer. Native Subversion
currently really only permits visible branches (though you could easily
use authz to limit that too).
