I played around with your patch a bit, ending up with this
teensy series.

I redid the code to use clientFile, not path, as that
will work better with AltRoots.  Also I simplified your
test and added a couple more for the now-supported wildcards.
And deleted a bunch of newly dead code.

My only concern is in the commit message, about performance.  A
change that has lots of files in it will cause many roundtrips to
p4d to do "p4 where" on each.  When the files don't have much
edited content, this new approach will make the import take twice
as long, I'll guess.  Do you have a big repository where you
could test that?

Tell me what you think.
