I have to admit I've thought about what would be involved in  
developing a ClearCase-like setup based on AFS (CC uses NFS with  
snapshots to implement "views"... and seems to inherit NFS's general  
lack of structure).  At minimum it would require rather more complex  
relationships between R/O versions than AFS currently has (or has the  
ability to support without overhauling volume headers at minimum).
