I don't actually know what this conversation is about, but that's
never stopped me jumping in with both legs before.

If a file is added on a branch, it goes into the Attic.  After a
subsequent import, the file remains in the Attic.

Therefore, the situation described above, where a file is
imported and branched, is possible.

But I've no idea if this particular bit of information is relevant
or not.

One thing I'm quite sure of, is that the fact that files in the Attic
go through exception coding and subject to various abnormal
things, doesn't worry me in the slightest.  I'm one of the biggest
supporters of flowers in the Attic.

BFN.  Paul.
