I think the terminology works best, and most in line with other tools
(p4, hg, bzr) like this:
* "Shelving" or "to shelve" means putting something on a shelf. There
is one "shelf" per WC.
* The thing we put on the shelf is called a "patch" or a "shelved
change", and is analogous to a book or a paper placed on the shelf. A
numbered version of a patch can be called a "checkpoint".
* A series of checkpoint patches is a series of "patch versions" or a
"checkpoint series". I think this is simpler than introducing a new term.
