Do you change the same files that you have already started fixing for Nasty

If no, you can just fix several other files, and commit just those files:

svn ci first_from_only_a_couple_of_files.c second.c

If yes, I do not see a viable altervnative to a genuine branch (which would
make things more clear).

Doesn't this mean that 'changesets' would just duplicate functionality of sbn
branches and checkins?
