Also see "quilt" (http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/quilt) if you
want to manage patches without Mercurial.  Quilt can be used with svn.

Mercurial Queues (mq) are basically just a direct reimplementation of
quilt, with several improvements because the patch stack and diffing
is integrated into the Mercurial revision history.  If you configure
mq to use git-format patches it can even properly track renames and
other corner cases via patch files.

At work I used to use svn+quilt for all of my development; now I use
mq instead and it's noticably nicer.
