darcs would allow you to locally record intermediate stages of a change,
making it easier to revert to the last good state if you screw up or
decide something would be better done a different way. You can also
unrecord one of the previous intermediate local commits you have made to
fix a bug or do it in a better way.

Then, when you have finished the changes and are happy with it all, you
can either send of the set of smaller changes (which might make the
history more understandable) or unrecord them all and rerecord the whole
thing (so it looks to the outside world like you just did it all at
once, as is the current case).

You can also more easily send only some of the changes you have made to
the main repo if you also have some unfinished stuff you are working on.

You can also do all this while on a plane, without bandwidth at a
conference, or whatever.
