"svn import -m filename" gives no warning

"svn commit -m filename" warns that the user probably meant "-F" instead of "-m". "svn import" uses log message arguments in the same way but does not give the warning. Guess which one I used first. This behaviour is inconsistent and therefore wrong :-) This probably applies to other commands as well.

svn: The log message is a pathname
svn: The log message is a pathname (was -F intended?); use `--force' to override.
