Unfortunately, no. Perforce still doesn't support this. I had to add
support for it in the p4 wrapper script we use. I added -d
(description) and -p (prompted description) options to submit.
I really wish Perforce would add this as it's a simple thing for them to
add and it's frequently requested. I'm sure some of the Perforce people
might just say 'well, you can always script it...' - well, we shouldn't
*have* to script anything! :(
