I'm doing this quite often when I'm in bug-fixing mode to save testing

Normally, you'd need to test your changes each time before committing.
Since this is very time consuming, I usually do some optimization when
fixing multiple simple bugs:

When I'm done with the first bug, I prepare the ChangeLog and log
message in my mcs/mcs directory, but instead of committing, I just make
a copy of the directory and move on to the next bug.  When I'm done with
all the bugs, I run all the tests (may take about 20-25 minutes) and
then commit all my changes.

Another example is where people are working offline most of the time,
when they go online, they commit all their changes at once.

I'm using the command line.
