ClearCase is not Subversion, and vice-versa. Please do not compare
completely different systems.

Then don't use it!

* merge lines are not possible to show in the graph because Subversion
doesn't provide that information (at least not in a way that takes less
than a week to fetch it from the repository)
* have you tried the 1.5.0-beta1 release yet? The graph looks very
different there than in 1.4.x versions
* Seems ClearCase 'optimizes' the graph to get the shortest lines
possible. You can do that with small repositories. If you however try
that with a really big repository (try the KDE one), you would have to
wait *hours* for such a graph to show. I don't know if ClearCase can
even handle such repositories...
