Where's the difference between having a feature branch and copying your
working copy somewhere else using a tool like rsync? You work with more
than one version of the same code.

I see only advantages in using (a) feature branch(es). You can commit at
any time. Revisions are cheap and subversion keeps you sane, because it
takes care of the versioning for you. If you use rsync or anything similar,
how do you get back to the "almost" good version from yesterday that you
have overwritten in the mean time, but you'd like to reuse a piece of code
from there?
