You're aware that 'svn import' already has the ability to create a
single directory that doesn't yet exist, if you give it a 3rd arg?
Obviously, though, this isn't the 'mkdir -p' behavior you're talking
about. I guess right now you just have to do a lot of 'svn mkdir
URL' commands before importing.

If CVS does this by default, then I guess maybe we should too....?
