Hold on a second.
Certainly, "p4 client -o ............. | sed ............. | p4
client -i" will be worth your time.
But I have to ask, in the face of "p4 sync -p" and also in the name
of repeatable work...
... why bother? What problem are you trying to solve, that makes you
want to dynamically change the root of the workspace?
