Staging/committing a long series of Subversion commits

I want to be able to work on and commit a series of 21(!) ports that someone
has submitted:

Normally there is one commit per port. That makes 21 commits. I have found
Git to be very useful in staging and performing a long series of commits to
Subversion, but Git doesn't support Subversion keyword expansion, which the
MacPorts Project relies upon.

So I was wondering if someone has a technique they know of or like to use
for doing something like this that remains compatible with Subversion and
its keyword expansion. Right now the best thing I can think of is using a
tool like Quilt to build up a series of patches, then doing some shell magic
to commit them all to Subversion one at a time.
