The opening paragraph of the "lifecycle of a patch" devguide page contains a confusing parenthetical aside implying that an "svn-like" workflow would mean never *saving* anything to your working copy and using "hg diff" to generate a patch. This is obviously wrong given the usual meaning of "save": if you never save anything to your working copy, "hg diff" will be empty.

Patch attached with proposed alternative wording.
