Difficult to answer without knowing the full set of subcommands.

ClearCase has a GUI version of its lsvtree command, that shows the
version tree for a file/directory. The display has an separate box
for each version, with lines connecting versions on each branch. It
also shows merge arrows for each merge that has been recorded, all the
tags associated with the element, and all the branch names. All this
information has to be obtained when starting the GUI.

There are pictures in svn/trunk/notes/guis/pics/ClearCase-lsvtree-*.gif.

On my last ClearCase project there were elements with hundreds of
versions, on dozens of branches with hundreds of merges. Possibly
thousands of tags. It my be acceptable to make separate connections to
get different classes of information (branches/merges/tags say), but
it would not be acceptable to make a connection for each
version/branch/merge.
