[p4] Security=1

I'm not sure that tickets are available for security 1.  We are currently
running security 2, but do not use tickets.  I have learned that rather than
store a password in P4PASSWD, you can store the MD5 sum of that password in
the same location (either Windows registry or environment variable).

We use a "background user", an account that is for the purpose of scripting
which no human will ever use (except to set up the automated scripts and
stuff, of course).  We put that user into its own group and assign the group
a very long ticket time and issue a p4 login once to obtain the ticket that
it can use basically forever.  That way the password never needs to be
stored on the machine, but it can still access perforce as necessary.  This
works with higher security levels as well.

Hopefully this will help.
