I have a similar issue. We use an issue tracker that shows every revision
as an candidate for code review. I like to check in frequently and this
was generating a lot of 'noise' in the tracker.

I solved this problem by turning my SVN working copy into a git repo. I
leave my git 'master' in sync with SVN and work on a branch and merge my
branch into 'master' when I am ready to check into SVN.

For backup I have a remote git repository that I push to frequently. It's
actually quite convenient.
