There isn't any easy way to do that.  What I would do is import
Program1.0 and then check it out into a working directory.  Then, either
copy all of the Program1.0-tweeked files over top of the working
directory or copy the CVS directories from the working directory into
the Program1.0-tweeked directory, and commit.  Then import Program1.1
and follow the usual procedures for importing a new vendor release.  The
key is to *not* import Program1.0-tweeked because it's local changes,
not a vendor release.
