Tagging changesets

I have a question that I have been wanting for quite a long time - I
hope I will write it clearly enough.

In our company, we are eager to switch to SubVersion (we did not have
any version control until now) but there could be one functionality
that we would lose if it is not supported: the possibility of tagging

By "changeset" I mean a set of changes made in various files of the
software project all relative to the same evolution or correction.

Let's consider the following situation: today I worked out the 2
following changesets:
- To implement FunctionalityA, I had to change (or add) code in files
File1, File5 and File102
- To correct BugB (which is in no way related to FunctionalityA except
it shares some of its files), I had to modify File1 and File102

Let's say that I organized my day such that I worked the first couple
hours of the day on FunctionalityA, then I switched to BugB until the
middle of the afternoon, and then I went back to FunctionalityA, such
that at the end of the day I have completed those 2 tasks - ie my
changesets are ready to be commited to the SVN repository.

Now I would like to commit my code in such a way that it is possible
later for somebody to quickly see and take all the changes made to
implement FunctionalityA, and separately to correct BugB. How do I
perform this commit action?

If the changesets were not having some files in common, I could easily
commit in two steps:
1) commit the files of FunctionalityA
2) commit the files of BugB

Now you see that my problem is that the two changesets have some files
in common, so what can I do there? I cannot select part of a file and
commit just that part under TAG_FCT_A or TAG_BUG_B.

Would somebody have a suggestion to keep our organization in separate

Thanks in advance!
