Anonymous access to perforce isn't possible because perforce
maintains client state on the server. That's one of the 
disadvantages of perforce.

There was, but some hardware problems got in the way of the
export and the files weren't kept up-to-date. Since I am so
close to committing to current, it isn't worth wasting the
project admins' time getting it back up an running when it
will be obsolete soon.

I decide that I could distribute one big tar and then diffs from
that, so although the initial download is huge, keeping the
source tree up-to-date should be just a matter of applying a
patch or two (or twenty).
