[p4] Scripting P4win.

Short answer is no.

Longer answer is:

- p4win is officially deprecated (currently minor updates only to work with
new server versions) and all new work is going into p4v 

- no event hooks currently provided, custom tools (and some flexibility on
context sensitive right click menus) are possible 

So it would be possible to wrap a sync action in a custom tool, but then you
need to train your users to do this rather than the bare sync action.

Others have chimed in with some useful suggestions.
