More Vendor Branch Pathology

Consider these two files from the emacs historic:

lisp/progmodes/cperl-mode.el
lisp/textmodes/flyspell.el

These have differently named 1.1.1 branches (ILYA and FLYSPELL). Merging 
them into the same import-1.1.1 branch casues all sorts of weirdness 
with tagging. The tags (e.g. Ilya_5_23) only point to commits in one branch.

I think they need to treated as separate branch heads.

This didn't work with the old or new vendor branch code.
