If you're tracking third-party code, then you'll want to import each new
release of that code.  If you're just using (some would say abusing)
import to get your own pre-existing code into CVS, then you should do
all future development with CVS and never import again.

The vendor tag is part of the multiple vendor branch support that was
envisioned for CVS but has never been fully implemented.  If you're
going to import multiple releases, you must use the same vendor tag each
