In preference to doing that, just create a temporary branch for
those changes, develop and stabilize them on the branch, then merge
them back into the main tree when ready.  Sure, some problems won't
be found until they are merged back but this does allow interested
developers to work together and test on that branch.

Note that this requires either only branching the files you are 
working with and hoping that is all you have to change, or merging
all other changes in other files into your branch as you go so the code
you are working with is up to date with the head.  Neither are likely
to be big time sinks if the changes are reasonably isolated.
