The moment you check something in by mistake is the moment you will 
truly understand why atomic commits are such a wonderful thing :)

I recently spent an hour reverting a mistaken CVS checkin (meant to 
check in one file, checked in the whole working tree instead) that could 
have been reverted with a single command in SVN.


P.S. I highly recommend bookmarking the dev FAQ Brett linked in another 
post. It contains several useful subversion tips and tricks.
