Atomic commits are extremely useful for read-mostly users -- with
per-file versioning as in CVS, it becomes very difficult to do a
binary search to find out which changeset introduced a problem.  With
subversion, it's quite easy for a tester to do this and be able to say
"r1234 worked for me, r1235 crashes."
