That's exact idea of concept of branches and merges. So if I have to
manage this I would do it this way:
There will be a trunk of the project accessible to your client and you
will work on a branch of trunk which
can not be accessed by your client. Anytime You would like your client
to see your minor changes made
to a project you will merge them to trunk with appropriate log message
which your client can understand
menawhile logs in your branch will be suitable to your needs.

Second way how to handle this leads through exporting your project
directly to your client. by the first one
is more comfortable and consistent. I suppose yout client doesn't commit
to project but even if he does, he can,
only merging may become less comfortable because of conflicts.

Hope it can help
