I tend to avoid it, only because I don't like seeing 1.1.1.X revisions
unless I really had cause to use import for vendor branch support.  You
shouldn't encounter any problems with this method, if you don't mind
seeing those revisions, and sometimes branches off the trunk with
confusing numbers like

There is an easy substitute for import when you are just adding a large

    find . -name CVS -prune -o -exec cvs add {} \;
