I think there's really no point comparing ClearCase to
CVS since they exist in mostly non-overlapping niches
in the SCM space.  CVS is an extemely simple tool that
will cause headaches when (mis)used in the wrong
space.  ClearCase is an extremely bloated tool that
will waste a lot of money if used in the wrong space.
