Thanks, Gareth and Nick, this looks like exactly what I need.  It looks like 
it's graduated to "supported" in 2001.1, as it's shown in "p4 help commands" 
(although I wasn't able to find it in my Perforce website search).

It's really just a cheap-o version of P4DTI (which I'm going to try to use 
with our bug tracking software at some point).  We've got different teams 
with different workflows, so at times we have the situation where 
changelists are submitted without fixes, and then are marked after the fact. 
  I can prevent this in some projects with a trigger, but this is a stopgap 
until everyone works the Right Way (or at least the Same Way :).
