Unfortunately this will annoy our emacs users here.  We use Clearcase here and
we have to use a Java application to check in/out our sources (this tool
interacts with a database, that is used to administrate all our labels/views
etc., a really annoying tool I have to admit, especially since it has no
command line interface). So far that wasn't much of a problem, cause whenever
I checked in or out or made a file private via this tool, emacs automatically
reverted it and set the correct read/write state.
Can we please have a user configurable option to change back to the old
