You can use branches to deal with this.  Each "feature" is worked on in
its own branch and then merged back to a "testing" branch for the code-
review you speak of.  When it passes that, you can merge that back to
the main tree for use/release.  At least, this is one way...

                   He who laughs last usually make a backup.
