That is exactly my understanding of the purpose of an atomic commit,
which as I (and Mark) have said, is built into Subversion (and indeed
most modern RCSs). If you want to call something "commit sets",
please define it for Subversion as "the changes which make up a
given revision". They really are a hack (however neat) to try to
make CVS work slightly more like a proper RCS.
