That sounds like you're advocating wiping the local copy and resyncing
everything from perforce.  Isn't that highly wasteful, and also potentially
significantly slower?  I've seen depots with 100,000+ files and over 4gb of
data - I wouldn't want to resync that from scratch every time.

I personally also like the extra protection (whether real or imagined) of
having the files compared against their MD5 signatures to make sure that
they transferred to the client correctly, something you don't get with just
a wipe and a resync.

In the environment where a build performed automatically on a 
separate build management server nothing of this should be 

Normally a production build runs against a clean directory 
structure where a simple p4 sync is done to populate it.

Just my 5c.
