No, but CVS comes really close (the sole exception is when some
catatastrophic error occurs during the commit, like running out of disk
space).  The other thing you can't do without transactional commits is
guarantee that a simultaneous checkout/update will either get all of the
commited files or none of them, and CVS doesn't even try to do that.
