The problem is that the import scripts only import _changed_ files. So
there's a i970927 tag only on files created or changed in the 97/9/27 sup.
Unmodified (and deleted) files aren't touched in the import.

The idea (I think; I was given the scripts) is to not have EVERY file in
the repository grow by 100 bytes (or so) EVERY import. At 512 byte
fragments, that's a new fragment every week or so, for every file in the
repository. :-(

That might be what I need to do. :-(

Take care,
