I looked at this.  I think it is missing one of the major features I'd
like out from `import', namely the ability to have targets like
`subdir/clean' and `subdir/all'.

I think doing this requires the bulk of the work, since it means a lot
of code generation changes in automake.  I'd be delighted to be proven
wrong :-)
