OK, so they copy it out of their own working copy from work. Better
yet, they take the whole working copy. What are they taking it home on?
   You can get 120gig external USB drives that fit in your pocket these
days and run on the USB power. The point is that if you didn't bring
the whole working copy along you put the modified files back where they
belong in the wc so it is just the same as if you had completed the edit

What does taking the file home have to do with this? When you get an out
of date error it means you need to update. The merge happens in your wc
and then you commit the result. If you get a 'C' status you have to
clean it up by hand. The same thing should happen with local edits to
the same file.
