[p4python] Possible to show sync output as it's happening, instead of returning it?

How keen are you to dive into the depths of the code?!

You could customise p4.py and override method:

class P4ClientHandler:
    def OutputInfo(self, data, level):
        "Parse the given data, adding it to self data."
        for line in string.split(data, '\n'):

And just print it instead of saving it...
