Ok.  Fair enough.

Usually I use import when migrating from one SCM product to another, so I
getting milestones out of one and using those as imports to CVS.  So I
was wiping out and repopulating all the time anyway.

Also considering that it's not unusual for me to checkout source into
mulitple locations for various reasons anyway, I never gave saw a need for
this kind of feature.  It would have been a very very minor improvement.
