[p4] Use "workspace" instead of "client"

In my work, we give each of the developers a branch that contains all 
the files in the main branch. This allows them to work on the files 
via p4 edit/submit/sync/whatever without messing up the main branch. 
It also allows them to have multiple clients (for development on 
different architectures) which can be thought of a their local 
directory sandboxes.  We call that branch their sandbox.
