SI, I think your criticisms of ClearCase are entirely unfair and undeserved. It is entirely inaccurate to say that ClearCase has a "total lack of security". On Unix, it uses Unix security, which is pretty good. On Windows, it re-implements a Unix-like security model (owner/group/world). In my experience, this security model has proven inadequate... but is easily overcome by custom implementations based on triggers. You can hook the check-out event, and deny the check-out if your defined criteria are not met. (Ditto for check-in, and many other operations.) In this way, I have restricted access to various vob areas and file types based on individual user name, group membership, and other special-case criteria. I've disabled certain groups of users from moving labels; I've prevented anyone from moving certain labels backwards; etc. The possibilities are endless. Oh, yeah - it does require that you have a CC admin with a clue.

[1nickt]: hippo no reason why not other than wanting to check an assumption :-)
[hippo]: For a self-contained application which can therefore ensure thread safety it seems like a sensible approach.
[choroba]: No, if there are no threads, then the user wants to use MCE. If there are threads, the user can choose.
[1nickt]: choroba Understood. I'm wondering about the logic in a cpanfile. If the perl doesn't support threads, it's easy: require MCE. If the perl does support threads, as you say the user has a choice, so require both? Or, assume that irrespective of the choide
[1nickt]: ... choice, the threaded-perl user *probably* wants to use threads, therefore only require threads and leave MCE out, allowing the user to manually install if desired?
[choroba]: just require any of MCE and threads. Not sure if that's possible in the cpanfile, but should be possible early in the Makefile
