This seems dubious, since you're not checking in the state you
actually have locally, and you were careful to run the full Python
test suite with your full local state ;-)

As a purely theoretical exercise <wink>, the last time I faced that
under SVN, I opened the single file I didn't want to check-in in my
editor, did "svn revert" on it from the cmdline, checked in the whole
tree, and then hit the editor's "save" button.  This doesn't scale
well to skipping 25 of 50, but it's effective enough for 1 or 2.
