why not just add this to the script at the point you want it to stop:

[ stop => 'stopped script by user request ... !'],

...or to just pause it at a certain point cut-n-pase this line into the script

[ pause => 'check  patch.... press [enter] to continue !'],

If you wanted to, it's nearly trivial to create different copies of
the script that each do a "different part" of the process ( eg
svn,build,package, as you suggest ), just delete the instructions
set/s that you don't want done from each of the three scripts!.   just
be sure to call them in hte right order... YMMV.
