That would mean that they are only available for a single developer
(since they do not reside in the repository). Is that what you want?

I think it would be more in line with SVN common practice to create a
separate branch per bug if the development is to take place
Developers can easily switch between branches if they want to work on
multiple bugs

These files probably should not be versioned if that is the case
(using svn:ignore).

Were these users experienced SVN users, or are they more experienced
in other version control systems (like CVS, STAT)

But there would be no history in the repository about what constituted
a changeset (especially if the bugfix is committed in several stages).
If the local storage is lost, the changeset history is lost as well.

By the way, if you want the changeset concept to be incorporated in
SVN you should discuss this on the SVN user/developer list, not the
TSVN lists (TSVN can only implement what SVN has to offer).
