That's because import doesn't go via the standard RCS routines - it just 
creates files itself.  Just needs adding to the import specific routines.

I completely changed the way it works and the two aren't really compatible - 
2.5.x really is stuck with the old one.  If I were to put the new one in there 
it'd probably upset a few people who are used to the old way (2.6 is enough of 
an upgrade that people won't mind so much).
