I guess that also means there's no need for ClearCase config specs? All
developers have write access to what ever version they choose and then
just merge it in. Or work on a suitable branch where the same would
apply before putting it on to the trunk.

Would a "config spec" interface be useful in determining what revision
to checkout? Or it this overkill?
