I'm sorry, but clearcase can give the users too much power. Especially when it comes to merging to the mainline. I want a tool that forces certian users to reverse merge before merging and breaking the build.

    Of course! Would you complain about Unix giving users too much power? Ridiculous.
    If you need to curb the users, that's what administrators are for. (I know. I'm a full-time ClearCase administrator^Wgod.)
    Triggers give you absolutely open-ended flexibility in constraining what the users can do.
    ClearCase rocks!
