I see a possible problem with "-b" if the file was imported and
branched, but never actually on the main trunk, and so resides in the
Attic, but the user needs/wants to change the default branch for commits
to the latest branch taken. The workaround would be to use -bREV, but it
might not be obvious to the user that this is what they need to do.

Is there a specified search order for multiple files that could match,
but do not yet have the vendor-tag?

Yeah, I wish it were not necessary, but I do not see any easy way to
deal with this...
