The new version only ever locks individual files so that isn't an
issue any more - directory level locks have been removed (assuming the
lockserver is used, which is the default)  For a while CVSNT has had
checkout atomicity which also works with rtag - partial commits aren't
tagged (or shouldn't be, anyway).
