Here's the workflow which provoked my asking. I wonder if there's an
alternative (and maybe more streamlined) method of accomplishing the

I received a patch containing a feature addition for a project I'm
working on. My primary interest is only to view the changes (ie. code
review)--not to submit them. AFAICT, the way to do this using
subversion directly (ie. not a wrapper app like TortoiseSVN) is to apply
the patch to my working copy and then view the diff. (I'm ignoring the
option of viewing the raw patch file directly in an editor.) Once I'm
done reviewing, I want to remove the change. Without the ability to
apply the patch into a specific changelist, I have to surgically revert
the changes if I have other changes of my own in the WC. If the patch
were applied to a changelist, I can revert it all in one shot.

Am I missing something for this workflow? Is there a simpler way? How
do others handle this scenario?
