I don't understand.  The "logic" I'm talking about is not used when
importing but when checking files out.  I.e. it only influences the read
part that decides whether the head revision is now on 1.X or on 1.1.1.X.

You are right about this part. The logic could probably be changed to look for in a new place.

What you seem to have munged is that currently, the text of an initial import is stored in 1.1, _not Successive imports are stored in,, and so on.

What I am saying is that something about the way CVS stores data in the RCS files on import will have to be changed, which I thought you said you were trying to avoid. 1.1 is already marked dead in the case we are discussing and would no longer be usable.

I'm probably not making sense because I don't know what I'm
talking about.

You were pretty close, I think.

I have heard of your paintings too, well enough.
God has given you one face, and you make yourselves
another.  You jig and amble, and you lisp.  You nick-
name God's creatures and make your wantonness your
ignorance.  Go to, I'll no more on't.  It hath made me
mad.  I say we will have no more marriage.  Those that
are married already - all but one - shall live.  The rest
shall keep as they are.  To a nunnery, go.
