I just stumble upon this error:

"The CLOCK property can not yet be set with `org-entry-put'"

I assume there is a plan for setting the CLOCK property directly
(through org-clock-in/out), and I guess both `org-clock-sum' and
`org-clock-report' will be able to use this information.

PS: I found the plan for the CLOCK property while trying to write a
function to merge all those CLOCK lines. Here it is, in case someone
wants to store dormant clocking info:

(defun bzg-org-merge-clocks nil
  "Sum clocking information for the current subtree and store it
as a :Clock: property."
    (while (re-search-forward 
	    (concat "^[ \t]*" org-clock-string ".*$")
	    (save-excursion (outline-next-heading) (point)) t)
      (replace-match ""))
    (let ((minutes (get-text-property (point) :org-clock-minutes))
	  (elapsed (string-to-number (org-entry-get (point) "Clock"))))
      (org-entry-put (point) "Clock" 
		     (number-to-string (+ minutes elapsed))))))
