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!  :(
