No, it is not the same thing.

'Line breeding' is either:

--breeding siblings back to each other over repeated generations,


-- repeatedly, over generations, breeding frogs with a similar phenotypic trait to each other in order to maximize expression of that trait.

Breeding the line e.g. 'leucomelas 1996 import' is not necessarily doing either of those things, because (a) there were more founding stock than 1.1, and (b) you can get other 'leucomelas 1996 import' from other hobbyists that haven't been related for many generations to the ones you have, and (c) you are not trying to increase the expression of any phenotypic trait.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.
