[p4] Reverting files for another user?

As an admin you can log in as them without a password, but the important thing is your syntax:
NO: p4 -u someuser login
YES: p4 login someuser
With the latter it shouldn't prompt for a password and should create a ticket.
Then the revert is a little tricky, you have to specify everything on the commandline:
p4 -u <user> -c <client> -H <host> revert -k <file(s)>
Just to keep my tickets listing kind of short, I log out after I'm done, which goes back to the original syntax:
p4 -u someuser logout
This may not work on older servers, especially ones that were out prior to ticketed authentication, of course.

to delete the clientspec of the open file. Is there some trick I have
