It is usually recommended to commit each piece of functionality as its own
revision, because it enables you to provide them as single patches to
outsiders or to revert a single step that turned out to be wrong by
reverse-merging a single revision.

Big revision numbers are nothing to be afraid of, eg. KDE is now (7:45
Berlin time) at rev 543910 - this usually increases a few times per hour...
