I'm not sure I understand quite what you're looking for.

If by changeset you mean a logical change that affects multiple files,
that concept maps to Subversion's atomic commits fairly well.

svn diff -r 490:491 $URL
... will give you the complete change that was committed as r491.

The "without you every checking in your changes" confuses me. Maybe
you can get what you want by running svn diff in a modified working
directory? This will essentially generate a patch containing your
local changes against what you checked out.

Alternatively you could use some method involving "private" branches -
e.g. check your changes in on a branch where they'd be available as a
logical change ("changeset") for others to see.
