According the proposal of reduce/avoid working with big patches, it
would help.

While it's even possible to handle separately a SCM and then send a big
patch, it's a pain merging it using CVS. And finally the history of that
patch is lost.

The workflow shouldn't change at all, but the tools can help to
improve the process of reviewing/merging patches.  If that process
may improve, then a 'fixed' release schedule is even more possible,
