[p4] Peforce History in source code

The other problem is that having "change comments" in the source file
messes up diffs to find out what has changed.

I vote for leaving it out and using separate cmds to access changes info.

I agree with this point also.  However, we "solved" the $Log vs. ~$Log
argument by having the $Log data placed at the _bottom_ of the file (old
SCCS days).

Maybe Perforce can do this?
