[p4] trigger icon on NT machine

So you need an event on an NT machine to
trigger a process on a Unix machine.
You could write a "demon" on the unix box
and a client for NT that triggers it. I
guess that would be the "proper" way.
The demon and trigger could probably be
perl or python scripts.
Or I think I've seen "rsh" for windows -
that would allow the p4 sync to be run remotely.
Another more devious way could be to make
the NT icon be a shortcut for a "remote
login" command of some type (freeware
"rlogins" for NT are definately available).
The NT system could do an rlogin as a special
user who had a .login (or .profile) that just
ran "p4 sync" then ran logout.
