They were added partly because there are some people who think that it's 
some kind of major failing, and partly because someone worked out how to 
do it... however it was never really integrated with the rest of the 
system - it works for simple stuff but isn't really production ready.

cvs has always been atomic at the file level, thus protecting from 
repository corruption...  what you can get it partial commits if there's 
a failure at the wrong moment - there are other ways of handling this, 
though, and adding that is something I'm working on.
