Thanks again... that cleared some of it up.  

I see what I've been stumbling over is what `importing' is really
like.  I had visions of actually slurping all the data somewhere.

But apparently it is more a process of allowing the running os to
recognize the data where it is.  Once that is done then the usual
kinds of movement of data become possible.
