I feel almost ungrateful saying it, but (as Greg Hudson and others
were pointing out in IRC today), you can more or less do this in CVS
too, by using date-based instead of revision-based queries. True,
it's a lot cleaner and simpler with Subversion, but I have done it in
CVS in the past and reached the bug.

Atomic, numbered commits still rock, of course :-).
