Create your own private branch to do work on.  When you want to save
work, commit the code.
When you are done, merge the changes down.  

Other possibilities include implementing a backup system that takes
hourly snapshots....

Find what works best for you, of course.

Still a newbie, I'd like to know how people tackle changing code they
are not ready to commit.  How does one maintain versions of changes one
has made to one's working copy of code, before one has reached the stage
of doing a commit?

It would be possible to use SCCS for this, I suppose, as I think it's
keyword tags are based on @() rather than $$, but this means keeping two
sets of commands in one's head at once, when they perform much the same
function.  I think this would be error prone. RCS uses the same
information in files as CVS and would therefor conflict.

I've searched the faqs and the last 3 months of the list for likely
subjects, but my keyword searches were less than adequate....

        Thank you,
