I think so.  I have previously used PCL-CVS for this.  I don't know
whether vc-directory is now supposed to be a full-blown replacement for
PCL-CVS, but actually using PCL-CVS for this purpose already was a
crutch: it should not be necessary to acquire a VC directory listing
just for the purpose of being able to commit several files in one

Maybe C-x v i can be made to do this?  Expand its meaning from "register
new file" to "register the current file/state for the next commit"?
