Hmm, it feels exactly the other way around to me: working with the DVCS
tools while reviewiing a patch allows me to be more productive (e.g.,
using 'bzr shelve' or the equivalent hg subcommand).
Making a local branch / clone for each issue also feels more natural
than working in a read-only SVN checkout.

That was the URL I was trying to work with: it has been a couple of
months since I last tried, however.
