RE: [proposal] --targets command line option

OK there is an issue in ci since this is where atomicity is required. As far
as I can see this is the only place there would be an issue. I do wonder if
many people would actually want to issue an ci command and provide a list of
several hundred files. The commands most used this would surely be
add/delete and setting properties. If you wished to modify a large number of
files surely the easiest way would be to make the necessary changes and then
issue a ci from the base of the repository.

If you have cygwin on Win32 then you have xargs. Most PC developers
(including myself) tend to abandon the command line pretty quickly, or they
install cygwin.

Didn't mean to start a serious debate on this. The proposed command --target
has obvious uses, however the only place where it is needed over xargs is
ci. IMHO I don't think this would be used that much. If the change is minor
developer cycle's then sure add it, but the question is what other feature
could you add in the time it takes to add it.

Do you have xargs on win32? Besides, that simple packs up the command
line. Not to mention that it wont work with commit (say if I only want
to commit modified files and not any added/removed ones), since it may
split the command up.
