Sadly, the horse is over-optimistic, so to speak, on this topic.

Aberdeen City Council plans a re-launch of its open data site, backed by
a CKAN catalogue ( http://ckan.org/ )
and the same data will re-appear there, all re-licensed under the OGL.
This is on a "soonish" timescale, so any attempt at an import, manual or
otherwise, will have to wait until there is 150% license interop
clarity.

Ah well, worth socialising this issue on the list anyway I hope, sorry
to take up time pre-emptively,
