Yes, that's exactly what I would do if wc's had been cheap. Several
times a day. One clean wc for every single "activity".

I do suspect, though, that this might be a way of thinking that is
particular to people with ClearCase background. In ClearCase, wc's
(aka "views") are essentially free, and using separate wc's per
acitivity is encouraged.

I would argue that this is "normal" usage not because it is the best
way, but because it is the only way most SCM's support well.
