Sorry Jeremy, I realise that it's part of a patch that failed. What I
failed to understand is why Fabian decided to cut & paste the import
process and show that something failed patching did an edit on it and
then further went on to commit it.

It'd be much easier to understand if Fabian just said "o.k. done, but
it's untested".

bugs can also get easily forgotten, and need pinging from time to time
to get things moving.
