=head1 Invocation
 
    git-archimport [ -h ] [ -v ] [ -T ] [ -t tempdir ] <archive>/<branch> [ <archive>/<branch> ]
 
Imports a project from one or more Arch repositories. It will follow branches
and repositories within the namespaces defined by the <archive/branch>
parameters suppplied. If it cannot find the remote branch a merge comes from
it will just import it as a regular commit. If it can find it, it will mark it 
as a merge whenever possible.
 
See man (1) git-archimport for more details.
 
=head1 TODO
 
 - create tag objects instead of ref tags
 - audit shell-escaping of filenames
 - hide our private tags somewhere smarter
 - find a way to make "cat *patches | patch" safe even when patchfiles are missing newlines  
 
=head1 Devel tricks
 
Add print in front of the shell commands invoked via backticks.
