The vendor branch works a little different than normal branches that 
way.  If you do another import, with updated code that you're importing, 
you'll notice that the updated import files now have a version.  
If you had made any changes to those same files on the main trunk, 
you'll get a warning that you need to merge in changes.  The idea is 
that someone else controls that which you're importing, and you want to 
keep it up to date with your own patches applied.  You then need to 
merge the vendor branch back onto your main to catch up (and, assuming 
no conflicts, your changes are still intact).

At least, that's what I've learned about it from experimenting with it.  
If anyone else has better insights please explain.

I don't know if that's good or bad relative what you're doing, but you 
should know how it works so you know what to expect next time there's an
