If you're committing a set of orthogonal changes, there's no reason
not to do one file at a time (assuming that each change/fix applies to
one file). However, I see a lot of power in the ability to group
changes to multiple files (aka a patch or change*set*) into a single
commit having a single comment. You can still provide detail about
what changed in each file:

foo.hpp: added bar method
foo.cpp: fixed bug in dtor
bar.cpp: performance improvements

All that said, you can continue to operate in file-at-a-time mode with
SVN if you prefer. Nothing prevents it.
