Not really a version control system, but ... there is 'quilt', a system
for managing a stack of patches to an upstream project. It is lazy
about making backups of files you're editing in the current patch, so
there is an 'edit' command (actually 'quilt add') to ensure that it has
a pristine copy of a file.

I thought I wouldn't like it, but I've gotten used to it. Though it
helps that you can import an existing udiff patch using a different
quilt command.
