You are correct that this is disallowed. Not because it breaks
atomicity, but because it breaks the correspondence between what the
client thinks it has committed and what the repository thinks was

However, why don't you use a 'pre-commit' hook to check if the files
are correct, and simply reject the commit if they're not? Then the
user on the client side will notice, fix them, and try again.
