You would have to parse out the files from the changelist and 
integrate each of them to the changelist level. However, this has its 
dangers, as well. There will be other changelists that have the files 
from changelist 43 as well as other files. The changes picked up in 
the one set may be dependent on the changes from the other set and 
your build will break. You have a high probability of destroying the 
integrity of the source code that the atomic changelists help you preserve.

That's always a problem when you have to selectively integrate files.
It's no worse in this case. It's just something that has to be
considered because the task is a necessity at times. -Wm
