Yes, that's possible. The P4DTI supports Perforce servers at release
2000.2 or later on any platform.
You can take one of two approaches to extending the P4DTI to work
with your defect tracker:
1. Run the P4DTI on Windows, using the Python Win32 extensions to
communicate with your ODBC data source.
2. Run the P4DTI on Unix, using an ODBC driver for Unix (for example,
unixODBC from <http://www.unixODBC.org/>) and a Python interface to
ODBC (for example, mxODBC from eGenix <http://www.lemburg.com/>).
