I have been using darcs at work, and I agree that this kind of tool has 
great advantages for branching...

But yhe very uncool thing is that it's more complicated than SVN, and 
almost none of us know how to use git.

Not really. You have to create a separate branch, and sync/merge 
manually (i.e. create a "non-semantic" copy of each patch).
