What annoys me with perforce isn't so much that you have to mark a
file as editable (though that is a pain when working offline), but
that "p4 sync" isn't enough when you have changes to a file.

You have to do "p4 resolve" as well.

And the number of times me and my coworkers have forgotten to that,
and have checked in their own changes over the previous one,
is... numerous...
