      With CVS
    committers are encouraged to avoid committing local changes,
    until a future moment when ``the patch will be done and fully
    working''.  When they reach that future point, the onus of the
    merging falls on the person who wants to commit.

    With a distributed SCM system, committing is not so `scary'.
    It's ok to commit often, and commit short changes.  They are
    local.  They won't break the remote tree for anyone else.

I don't think it makes sense to compare these two different "commit"
operations -- it's like comparing an apple to an orange tree branch.
If you compare applies with oranges instead, the difference is
much less.
