Why on earth it's called an import utility and does not the job they way it
is expected to do?
To least, I thought it will either not work at all, or it will truly bring
the database structure to "exactly" to the state that when .xml generated.
And any idea of where the wp-post's ID 2 go?
Does mySQL's "TRUNCATE" also has its own weird logic that sometimes after
the truncate, you cannot really, truly start from a fresh slate and your
previous database structure will somehow haunt again?
