Sorry, but i (and presumably quite a few people on this list) can't read
the language on the website that you quote, so you should try to explain
to us (i.e. translate) what they say about the concept of minimum commit
unit. Without this explanation, i fear that we can not help you much
because it could literally mean everything, so any attempt to say what
"commit unit" svn has (uses? likes for dinner? - you name it) would be
pointless.

Almost any modern SCCS (and hence also SVN) is better than VSS, so a
detailed comparison is mostly a waste of time anyway.
