In baz, we just removed archive-setup, make-(category|branch|version).
We also made -S implicit with import (i.e. import will create the
requested information when needed).

What I'd like to do is fold import into commit and remove yet another
command, but it was decided that midstream imports (import, commit,
commit, commit, import again) is a legitimate command. Personally, I
feel that was and continues to be a mistake.

So we can't quite do that, at least not at this point. But it still
leaves open the possibility for commit to call import if necessary. But
(there's always a but) there's a minor problem; the user isn't obligated
to specify a qvn (qualified version name) with init-tree. 

So what about the following: 

$ cp -a my_old_sources sources
$ cd sources
$ baz init-tree
$ [hack up =tagging-method]
$ baz commit -s"Initial source imports"

baz: A fully qualified version was not specified when init-tree was 
run. Please run either "baz import [archive/]fully--qualified--version"
or "baz tree-version [archive/]fully--qualified--version; baz commit"
