"Policy branches" aside, this is a feature it would be nice to have:
merge/propagate with path restrictions.

A simple (and common) use-case is propagating/merging changes made in
a sub-directory (possibly a library, like sqlite in monotone repo) to
another branch.

That's one case where I use external diff/patch a lot ;-)
