It's annoying how many different places that particular task was
performed in. :-/  (I realise one of the points of the change is to
consolidate the functionality).

Also, revert-* is a confusing name for patches.  It took me a short
while to realise that they were patches to "git revert", not reversions
of other patches.  Maybe that's just me though. :-)

I did think "hmmm" at this change, yeah.  Am I correct that the current
behaviour is that the import simply fails, and leaves the tree in an
indeterminate state?

What's the effect on the process using the connection when it's forcibly
terminated?  Lost log data?
