clearfsimport should support synchronous request for mastership

clearfsimport should have the command line option -srfm (like mkelem has), with the following functionality:
- if mastership is not locally available for a checkout, request it like in "cleartool co -srfm"
- skip the element and raise an error if mastership cannot be transferred
- upon success, continue processing this and other elements
- only at the end of the clearfsimport run, start the checkins (first checkout first checkin)
Rationale: to checkin, the mastership change has to be imported; this may take some time. Ideally, clearfsimport would poll the actual status for a configurable time, and then perform the checkins (like done in the Cadence/ClearCase integration).

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
