As I understand it, when you commit your stuff it also becomes immediately
visible in all other views that look at the same branch. That is a bit

Other than that, the dynamic view is an interesting tool to make
a workspace visible on multiple machines; normally you'd either
use NFS for that, or in 'commits are cheap and not carved in stone'
VCS systems, you just commit and move that commit over to the target.

We're at the point where simply compiling the sources on a local disk
is faster than winking in the objects in in clearcase.
