I'm not sure whether this is much useful for a general purpose. I'm
afraid the overhead for using such a tool might become much bigger then
the outcome. 

Right now there are a couple of ways for doing something like this,
depending on kind of changes:

As we already did in past, for bigger changes I see a chance to set up an
account on SF and creating a new branch inside the normal Geany
subversion were the feature is developed. But this is hardly depending
on the feature/kind of changes of course.

Another more locally way is to get a copy of git mirror available at 
http://git.geany.org/ and create a local branch. Once the feature is
ready to publish, Enrico, Nick or me could pull from that branch and
merge it into Geany's trunk branch which is a bit similar to what the
guys at Linux kernel development are doing. Of course this will need to
have git installed and get a bit familiar with it, but it's worthy ;) 

A third way I'm thinking of are the (devel) mailing list as well as the
patch tracker at sourceforge.net we could use for exchange code

Thanks. You are part of that ;) 

Cheers and just my 2 cents.
