Just FYI also, the major differences between the two are:
o ImportScrubber is free software :) whereas Tim costs a few $
o ImportScrubber has a GUI in addition to command-line and Ant interfaces.
o Tim parses source code rather than requiring up-to-date .class files[1].
o Tim allows imports to be collapsed according to a configurable threshold.

That's the only major ones I can think of :)
