Hmm. Anything that depends on "--ignore-applied" is fundamentally broken
as an import tool. There's no way something like that can be valid, since
it inhently means that somebody is trying to apply a patch that simple
isn't applicable.

So it seems like you're trying to work around some other serious problems 
in the import, and as a result the import is clearly not trustworthy. 

Don't do this.
