Maybe stgit, but I haven't used it. My personal workflow is something
simplier: I work and commit locally, whatever comes in. Before I push it
out, I look at the patches I've made and rebase them interactively, see

"When I work, I work like a pig, doing lots of things at once. But
before I push the changes out and pretend to be a good boy."
