Umm, no. Commits are atomic; either all lines are committed or no lines are
committed. There is no possible middle ground which is consistent. The worst
thing that happens if a second commit cannot proceed because of an overlapping
prior commit, is that the second committer gets an "out of date" warning and has
to update (and possibly handle conflicts) before committing. The system cannot
possibly do that automatically.
