Huh? ClearCase is merely being consistent. Adding to or removing files
from a direvtory is analogous to changing the contents of a file, and
since CC requires you to "check out" a file in order to change it,
having the same requirement for directories makes sense. CC's directory
lock is exactly equivalent to the Unix write permission bit on directories.
