Separate focused patches are always better. They are much easier to
understand and to merge or revert should the need arise. It's very
similar to the desire to keep real changes separate from
formatting/cleanup changes.

It would be nice if subversion allowed modified files to be associated
in groups, so that one could develop with multiple changes but keep them
separate during development and submission time. That's one thing I miss
from Perforce which was the codeline mgmt for Cloudscape.
