FYI - Guido built this system to work within the existing Google infrastructure, he didn't choose Perforce for the project. Guido also wants to eventually refactor it to work with many SCM including Subversion, CVS, etc. BTW, Perforce is used at many very-large-software-companies, so while it is not perfect, it is still very useful.
