[p4] Is there a better "p4 blame" command?

I had a similar issue with some hybrid Unix/windows users. They edit,
build and release on Unix/Linux. I showed them the P4Visual client Time
Lapse View (similar to blame) and Revision Graph and they come around
pretty quickly to use the windows client almost exclusively.
I'm not sure if the Linux/Unix version of the P4Visual client has all
the same features so this post may be of no use to you.

Yes, I've got that already. Thanks for writing it. It's mostly what I
need. Actually, I personally use the emacs integration, but we've got
some luddites here who are still clinging to CVS and looking for excuses
not to switch to P4. The latest excuse is that there's no command-line
version of "cvs blame".
