Hmmm... I still think these are useful because they provide concrete
information outside of CVS. I haven't used them on gnujaxp, but I
have consulted them many times on other projects.

However, if this is stopping you importing them safely I would
consider removing them.

I don't know how you're doing your import but I would have thought a
transition layer was basically just:

  cat |
      grep -v -e '\$\(id\|author\|date\|....\).*$' >

But anyway... let's see the patch.
