actually i don't see a difference between the two approaches (but as you 
know IANAL).
consider that the original SGA only lists _part_ of the repository.  so, 
in order to get anything useful that can actually build we need to ask 
for additional stuff anyway.

if we have all the rights to the Oracle owned files in OOO340 + all 
outstanding CWSes, does it really make a difference if we first merge 
the CWSes in HG and then import the result, or whether we do it the 
other way around?

the result should be the same, but with merging first the history will 
be much more useful, plus it's less work.

the stuff that we need to remove from the repo can be removed either 
before merging the CWSes (if a CWS changes a removed file there will be 
a conflict on merge), or after; can't see much of a difference here.
