We're on 2007.3; another reason to schedule a migration window...

| What version are you looking at? The docs for 2008.1 off the 
| Perforce web site say:
| 
| Force flag. Allows the description, modification date, or 
| user of a submitted changelist to be edited. Editing a 
| submitted changelist requires admin or super access. 
| Superusers and administrators may also overwrite read-only 
| fields when using the -f flag.
| 
| I'm guessing you're looking at an older version. This feature 
| has been there since 2007.1. The text you're quoting is the 
| same as that in the
| 2006.2 docs.
