[Bug-openmcl] "continue" restart in import

this is not a bug, just a small ambiguity --
the ansi spec says that the 'continue restart "is generally part of
protocols where there is a single ``obvious'' way to continue, such
as in break and cerror. some user-defined protocols may also wish to
incorporate it for similar reasons. in general, however, it is more
reliable to design a special purpose restart with a name that more
directly suits the particular application."
import-1 sets up a 'continue restart for "ignore attempt to import"
and a second 'resolve-conflict to unintern and then import. neither
of these, to me, seem to be the "obvious" restart.
i talked to pfdietz about the tests (import.error.4, .5) that were
triggering this ambiguity and he ended up rewriting it to not rely
still, it might be nice to clean this up if it doesn't cause any harm.
