Thanks for all the help. Of course, moments after I sent the email I
tracked down the press release.

Now I'm trying to use it, but it wants to use the 'annotate' p4 command
and my client doesn't have it.  I noticed that it was missing when I was
checking out some other tools in the downloads page, and at one point there
was mention of the annotate command, so I tried it to no avail.  It doesn't
show up in the 'p4 help commands' list.

My Win2k client version is Rev. P4/NTX86/2004.2/76641 (2005/02/28). Maybe
it needs a later server version, which is only 2002.1?
