Maybe the solution is for import to change

    1.1 (dead, empty) (live)


    1.1 (dead, empty) (live)
    1.2 (live) (live, no delta from 1.2)

with the RCS -b branch pointing to 1.2.1 instead of the usual 1.1.1 .

Is this feasible?  Or is 1.1.1 hard-coded all over the place?

Paul, the imported file would now be live on the trunk (Attic or no Attic)
instead of dead on the trunk.  Would that solve your problem, the one
that forces you in to "exception coding" ?
