Usually importers use at least two separate files to save state, one
mapping between git object names and mark numbers, and the other mapping
between native revision identifiers and mark numbers.  That way,
when the importer uses marks to refer to previously imported commits or
blobs, fast-import knows what commits or blobs it is talking about.
