RE: git-p4 + watchman - watching the p4 repo?

I haven't used perforce so am unfamiliar with any behaviors specific to that but the logic to have git automatically tell watchman to start watching repos is just a convenience feature.  Feel free to remove/disable/modify it in the fsmonitor-watchman integration script:

	if ($retry > 0 and $o->{error} and $o->{error} =~ m/unable to resolve root .* directory (.*) is not watched/) {
		print STDERR "Adding '$git_work_tree' to watchman's watch list.\n";
		qx/watchman watch "$git_work_tree"/;
