I have checked in a test case showing the issues with contribution import
cycles in SVN r633170:

The test case causes a StackOverflow exception, that's why I named it *FIXME
to exclude it from the build until the issue with cycles is resolved.

I believe that it's possible to provide a simple fix for this issue (and
wanted to work on it...). Ant, could you please let me know when you don't
have any objections with me fixing it? Thanks.

I'll work on finding a good test case for showing the issues with split
namespaces in general in the next two days.
