The advantage here is that you can split you local work into smaller
commits before pushing them to the server. That makes the review easier
by clearly separating the various steps of the implementation. It's also
convenient to rollback some of the changes and correct them without
starting from scratch.

Local commits should be one of them though, since it's on the SVN roadmap :)
