If this is such a common need, I'm surprised we don't hear more about
pushmi: http://search.cpan.org/~clkao/Pushmi/lib/Pushmi.pm which claims
to do exactly that. I do see where the ability to make local branches
for experimental stuff would be handy without cluttering the repository
until you are sure the change is an improvement, but my own need for
this has never gone beyond what you can do by checking out another
working copy instance - or copying the one you have.
