SVN with workflow

AFAIK SVN does not support workflow (e.g. draft - review - live)
support, but
wanted to ask how other people implement a "Review Then Commit" process?

So far we are using Bugzilla to attach patches/diffs, but it slows down
the process and also is "annoying" when one wants to add new files,
because the developer first has to add them locally and when being
applied/committed by the reviewer has to delete the previously added
files first.

We are currently thinking about introducing a draft and a live branch,
whereas developers could commit on the draft branch and then need to
create special patch files, e.g.

A foo1.bar r433453
M foo2.bar r433455
D foo3.bar r433944

and then the reviewer would have a script applying these changes to the
live branch and can test them on the local live branch and if good then
commit resp. merge.

In order to make sure that changes are not being forgotten we would
compare the two branches on a daily basis.

But this is also a bit cumbersome, so any pointers for better solutions
are very much appreciated.
