I've been looking back at my hacks.

Given that imports currently make an *active head* automatically,
assuming that there is no existing branch, can we at least have a
short-term "improvement" that imports will cause a file (initially
added on a branch) to move out of the Attic during an import?

It would be nice to go the whole hog and have consisent
behaviour between imports on no-existing-branch and imports
on existing-branch, but in the interim, as a first step, can we at
least have the file moved out of the Attic so that it stops being
an exception in that respect, even if it still an exception in
other respects?

ie something along these lines that I posted before...

Index: import.c
RCS file: /cvs/ccvs/src/import.c,v
retrieving revision 1.133
diff -r1.133 import.c
   if (inattic)
       RCS_setattic(vers->srcfile, 0);

Please include ChangeLog entries and sanity.sh test cases with patches you'd like us to accept, as per the ccvs/HACKING file.
Also, please send patches in universal (-u) or context (-c) diff format!

"My father often told me,
We have servants and machines
in order that our will may be carried out
beyond the reach of our own arms.
Machines are more powerful than servants
and more obedient and less rebellious,
but machines have no judgement
and will not remonstrate with us
when our will is foolish,
and will not disobey us
when our will is evil.
In times and places where people despise the gods,
those most in need of servants have machines,
or choose servants who will behave like machines.
I believe this will continue
until the gods stop laughing."
