Mirrors are read-only, yes; so to do disconnected work, the relevant
workflow is a bit different: One makes a series of minor changes to a
branch tagged into an archive on one's laptop, and then later merges
from this branch into the primary one.

There's nothing special about single files, and no support for bk-like
file-specific comments (though including per-file comments inside your
patchlog entries when appropriate is no doubt a good practice). You can
commit a bunch of little changesets (ie. into your own development
repository) and then merge them all at once (and in merging, create one
*big* changeset in the repository you're merging into containing patch
logs from all the little changes you made prior).
