It does as long as you get it right on the first commit. After that it
becomes muddy (and you end up having to grab multiple revisions to represent
all of the changes for your task. So it's still technically possible, IMHO
just not as practical or elegant as having a branch that ONLY contains
changesets related to the task at hand. Unless of course you perform updates
from the trunk into the branch, at which point I would agree that creating a
branch may very well be overkill.
