But the versions of the files that doesn't get checked in during the
fileset, doesn't get change, does it?  From what i understand from the

So, I have fileA, fileB, fileC at v5. I change fileA and fileB, and
check in the set, fileA and fileB has v6 and fileC still has v5.
Now, if I check out v6, I will get fileA, fileB at v6 and fileC at v5.
