Response from GitHub staff regarding using their Importer
<https://import.github.com/> to import CPython:

Unfortunately, the repository is too large to migrate using the importer.
I’d recommend converting it to git locally using something like
hg-fast-export. Due to its size, you’ll need to push the local repo to
GitHub in chunks.

So it seems like Importer is a no-go.
