I like to check in my changes in such a way that the diffs show a
logical progress. The way I do it offline in CVS and SVN, is that I
copy aside versions of the file, for each planned.

And then later, when I'm online, I do a an update against the
repository, with virgin versions of the changed files, and then I copy
in the copied-aside files, and do my checkins in stages.

Some way to automate that workflow would be nice.

I guess this could be accomplished in a tool run separately from svn,
but then I lose SVN tool support.
