When programming, I tend to do check-in's when I make some kind of
progress (ideally, the code builds and the test suite passes).
The trap is when I work for a while, make some progress, make a wrong
turn, and then make a mess. A versioning file system makes it easy to
get back to "make some progress" and try a different turn.
The compromise is to do a "work in progress" check-in prior to risky turns.
