You might be interested in taking a look at the 'changelist' support
introduced in SVN 1.5.  It isn't perfect - as it suffers from the
overlapping change issue as well.  It's modeled after Perforce's
changelist support which likewise is file-based rather than
hunk-based.  However, it'd help a little bit in this situation.

Offline commits have been talked about before for SVN, and some
developers have an idea how to implement it.  But, that's probably
pretty far off unless someone steps up.  =)  -- justin
