Why does bringing in a CWS require creating diffs?

If the CWS is installed on a client, any diffing can be done afterwards using tools that support
SVN, yes?

Have you checked the instructions for how non-committers can use SVN to prepare a patch from
changed files in a working copy?  Is there a way to exploit that for what you are thinking

PS: I agree that many concrete cases of working on a branch can be kept simple.  But an extensive
feature requires some way to be integrated for build-checking somehow.  There are also preparations
that can be made in the main tree by having benign stubs awaiting integration of a live feature.
 It all takes foresight and attention to modularization and interfaces, though.

I have concern that things look a lot more complex when
we discuss them too much, and eventually we will not
try anything at all.

I would be interested in working in a development branch
if there is a clear path to integrate some of the CWSs there.
At this point I don't know how to turn those into diffs
(I guess I have to do that in Hg, and I am not good at it).
