No, because it's impossible: atomic means that everything changes, or
nothing *in 1 operation*.
There is no operating system which lets us rename more than 1 file per
rename operation, so, it's impossible.
I'd rather have you report bugs (with reproduction recipies!) which
show us how to create working copies in an unrepairable state: that's
something we *can* work on.
Thanks in advance!
