[p4] Spec depots?

Definitely worth having.

First, of course, you can restore a missing workspace, etc., but
it also provides a history of metadata that is tedious to get
in other ways. (Like, have we ever had a workspace named "XYZ"?)

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?
