I believe the filesystem used by ClearCase does something similar.

Clearcase requires explicit check-in/out else others won't see your changes. At least if you're in different views. And if multiple people are working in the same view, you should be shot.

I meant the you could have your local copy, but have it alert you if a file your writing too has already been changed by another person part - the dynamic view in ClearCase lets me have a local copy (as long as I've checked out the file) and will alert at checkin that the file was changed. The other (not checked out) files are automatically updated (i.e. colaberate with other people real-time).

On the other hand, even vim alerts me, if an opened file is changed on the disk...
