That's correct.

Since each import is tagged, then you can obviously do the merge from
the previous tag:

        cvs checkout -j previous_vendor_release_tag -j vendor

The vendor:yesterday is just a trick if you don't do more than one vendor
import in a day; then you don't have to look up what the last release
tag was.
