They are if you do the merge after the import like you're supposed to --
READ the section of the manual that I pointed you to on updating with
the import command:


particularly the last paragraph where it says:

        Since import has no way to detect removed files, you should do a
        merge like this even if import doesn't tell you to.

I don't think that question was very hypothetical at all. -- Calvin
