Mhmm, I had no idea what `scratch package' really means.  To do
something `from scratch' normally means to start from the very
beginning.  Obviously, this isn't meant here, so I strongly recommend
to improve the help text since it is very misleading, at least it was
for me.

And thanks a lot for the detailed explanation!  I'll stick to
`--import' and `--add-import'.
