so I have a freebsd tree checked into perforce.

can update the tree and get changes to that original directory.

I can think of two ways to do this:
# move the modified one out
p4 open
p4 move //depot/Freebsd/src1/sys/netatalk/...
followed by:
# bring back the original version by copying it from before changes
p4 integrate //depot/Freebsd/src1/sys/netatalk/...@original_import
p4 resolve
p4 submit

Or, a second alternative: not quite sure how to do this if there are
deletions and additions on the tree
#copy out the modified version.
#revert the directory in question to exactly how it was before the
changes started
files in netmumble should see all their history even when they were in
and files now in netatalk should see history from before the changes
and MAYBE from when they were modified  (optional).
Personally, using svn I would use the second approach

mv netatalk netmumble
rm -R netmumble/.svn
svn co netatalk
diff -ru netatalk netmumble

or cp then svn revert would give the same result.

unfortunately I have to use P4 :-/
