Thanks for the link, I'll check this. Unfortunately, I can't do this for
the current project since we use 1.11.1 and the server is administered
by other people (I suppose one needs 1.12 both on the client and the
server side; please correct me if this isn't the case).

Do I understand you correctly: it did work for you with import -b,
right? Do you mean it would be easier to do with normal branches,
applying upstream patches by hand and committing? In particular, I don't
see why you had to reset admin -b values and move files in / out of the
Attic; do you remember concrete scenarios?
