I don't believe in the "one change, one commit" nonsense. More of "tools down, check in". P4 checkins used to take so long!

@mdhughes While I appreciate small commits, not every change is small. And breaking something into small changes isn't always a great idea.

It's the dogmatism around the issue that's the problem. And a lack of patience to study larger changes.

@GeoffWozniak Typically if a problem is HUGE, I'll put it off to a day of its own. Which I mostly did with moving marklib; it didn't break much, but I had to have a clear mind to fix the build script. Everything after was trivial.

My really huge problems, like in JS, I have to either branch or not check in for many days, which is shit behavior in a team.

Probably with git I could do small changes one checkin each, but like I say, P4 conditioned me otherwise.
