You can keep a "working" branch on which you can commit at any time,
just for sync-ing purposes.  Ideally, this branch would have both "real"
changeset boundaries, and also boundaries that are between changesets
for the purposes of syncing machines.  But it shouldn't (ideally) be
_missing_ any changeset boundaries - because convenient tools for
breaking up changesets don't exist yet (but are, IMO, high priority at
this point).

Then, when you want compose your working changesets into "real"
changesets, you can do so with a series of replay --exact and commit
commands into a "clean" branch.
