Untested advice follows:

I think you can just import it to a local archive.  Commit changes
there happily.   And later star-merge.

You _might_ need a --reference argument to star-merge -- the exact
"ancstor-for-star-merge" algorithm isn't fresh in my mind, but the
path-log of your newly imported tree will have everything you need.
Worst case is that you need a --reference FOO where foo is the version
you were thinking of tagging from.
