Yep; its more how to specify properties like svn:ignore during import.
It grew a bit into a way to export and import properties, as you can
export and import files.

Another option would be to have an import-style command that does not
immediately commit files; it would instrument the directories for an
upcoming commit. Being able to import properties could then be done as a
script (but files which should have been ignored will then need to be
reverted before the initial commit).
