Description

When importing a WXR file in a multisite setup, if

  1. an author in the WXR file exists in the multisite but not in the current blog; and
  2. the "import author" route is taken (i.e., neither "create new user" nor "assign posts to an existing user" route is taken)

then a "Failed to create new user" error is reported.

Instead of that error, the existing multisite user should be added to the current blog.

I can create a patch that implements this if folks think it would be a good idea.
