I like having it.  We don't refer to it very much, but has been handy when reviewing/researching what happened.

I have not seen any gotchas with it.  

The only thing special I did with it was putting a security restriction on that depot (//perforcespec for us) to only the Perforce admin group.

We are thinking of creating a spec depot since we had workspaces and
other things accidentally deleted in the past and those were very
difficult (and at times impossible) to restore.

What is the general view on these?  Does anyone use these?  Is it a
good idea, bad idea to have a spec depot?  Any gotchas?
