[p4] getting rid of clients?

Create a spec depot. It won't version any already existing clients, but 
it will version any that are created or changed.

To version the existing ones, I use this script on Unix. Should also 
work on cygwin.

# Preserve clients
for client in `p4 clients | cut -d ' ' -f 2`
        p4 client -o $client > $datadir/client.$client

That's a space between the single quotes in the cut command and back 
ticks around the block from p4 to -f 2. $datadir is just a directory to 
store in.
