Agreed... we basically use the branch as needed system. A feature that is too large for one developer or one commit will be a feature branch.

Also, we don't use a common trunk. We have a path for each major release of our app (which is a copy/branch) of the previous version). We find it is much easier to work this way than do everything on a "trunk" and then branch for release. So, most of our dev is done in that versions branch/path and every now and then we will create a feature branch as I said above.
