Groovy.  I love it when people use citool, we get better comments.

The only problem with this is that it doesn't catch renames, so you'll be
adding and deleting files instead of renaming them.  Buried in the import
-tpatch code, you'll find (it's a shell script):

bk patch -g1 -f -p1 -ZsE \
    -z '=-PaTcH_BaCkUp!' --forcetime --lognames > ${TMP}plog$$ 2>&1

and then

grep '^Creating file ' ${TMP}plog$$ | sed 's/Creating file //' > ${TMP}creates$$
grep '^Removing file ' ${TMP}plog$$ | sed 's/Removing file //' > ${TMP}deletes$$
if [ -s ${TMP}deletes$$ -a -s ${TMP}creates$$ ]
then    (
	cat ${TMP}deletes$$
	echo ""
	cat ${TMP}creates$$
	) | bk renametool $Q

which you really want to do, the repository will bloat up with duplicate files
if you don't.

Jeff, aside from the fact it's some unknown black box, what don't you like
about "import -tpatch"?  Is there something we could fix?
