If I get you right, you just need any old copy of the obj
files to be present in a fresh checkout.

Not as such, but I think you could get away with a mix of a
checked out tree of source code, and an exported set of obj

In other words: copy the directories and obj files to a
seperate directory, then import this directory as a seperate
"objfiles" branch. When doing an initial checkout of your
source code, follow that up with an export of the "objfiles"
branch, and you should have the right mix of files.

Hope this makes sense,
