There is my reroll of Eric's patch [*1*], that is in 'pu'. The topic
ends at 12b3541 (t9600: adjust for new cvsimport, 2013-01-13).

I think the folks on the traditional Git side prefer the approach
taken by it to keep the old one under cvsimport-2 while adding
Eric's as cvsimport-3 and have a separate version switcher wrapper
[*2*, *3*].  Also Chris Rorvick, a contributor to cvsps-3 & new
cvsimport combo, who already has patches to Eric's version, agrees
that it is a foundation we can build on together [*4*].

Eric hasn't spoken on the topic yet, but I think what the rest of us
agreed may be a reasonable starting point.

I think I can apply your patches on top of 12b3541 with "am -3" and
have it automatically update git-cvsimport-2.perl ;-)
