Absolutely. After I read the article, seeing that the author had trouble in the past finding a good point to commit, I searched for "test driven" just to see if anyone else had the same intuition.

The hard part about using TDD to drive commits is that writing good tests is a very different skill from writing good code, and that you'll (initially) sink a lot of time into writing, maintaining and debugging tests instead of staying in the flow and just writing a test, see it fail, write some code, until you find that the tests you have are sufficient. I think I had to do TDD every day for almost a year before I was able to find good commit points while writing tests.
