I've wanted that exact feature several times.
I sometimes want to save some piece of my work prior to a revert. I
could use MQ, but that's pretty heavy handed. On Linux I'd just "hg
diff >changes.patch", but of course if I do that on Windows it garbles
the line endings and I end up with a patch that won't apply. A command
