What's the logic on allowing imports anyways? Offhand, I don't imagine
it as a useful tool since in my mind it would break the chain of
revisions, i.e.

Base-0 -> Rev-1 -> Rev-2 -> Rev-3

Base-0 -> Rev-1 -> Rev-2  Base-1 Rev-(3? 1?)

Why wouldn't somebody just avoid this mess and just start a new branch?
