First of all, thanks for your input.

The reason it did not work out of the box for you is because you did not
place p4config.txt in the perforce workspace root.

Which, from what I gather from the their web site, is the standard (if you
will) way to do it:

That being said, I think it would be nice if we could make the plugin a bit
more helpful. One way of doing that could for example be for the plugin to
require that the P4CONFIG
