The --preserve-user option is used to submit somebody else's work
from git to p4.  It does "p4 change -f" to edit the author of the
change after it has been submitted to p4.  P4 requires admin
privileges to do that.

Changes that are imported _from_ p4 to git do have the correct
author information.

Can you explain a bit more what you're looking for?
