      Ditto what Brandon said. We do multiple-developer development all the
      time without stepping on each other and never have to go through the
      hoops that you are. If you want to make a quick change to a locked
      file, check out an unreserved copy until the other guy checks in his
      changes. If you have multiple people working on the same set of files
      at the same time, each person should really be checking out each file
      onto his private branch first. That way the /main/LATEST version is not
      locked. As each person finishes his changes, he first checks his file
      into his private branch, then merges any parallel changes from the main
      branch onto his private branch, fixes anything that broke, and merges
      the combined changes back to the main branch. ClearCase is designed for
      just this type of development and used properly it works very well.
