That's a workaround, not a solution. Any VCS that requires an O(n) (n

atomic _without any additional effort), is just too slow to be worth
anything in my opinion.Everybody is entitled to their own opinion - which, of course, means
that we are entitled to ours. Nobody's forcing you to use Clearcase...
Oh your work uses it. Well when you come down to it really that was a
voluntary decision of yours too.
Besides, git is open source, clearcase is not. If git doesn't do what
you want, then you can patch it. If clearcase doesn't do what you
want, too bad.
