I asked this a few days ago, but didn't get an anwer yet. I think it is
because perhaps it is a Dumb Question. :)

I was thinking about my problem a bit more (importing some really old versions
of a project to create a SVN history for it), but don't think it would be
possible at all. You'd have to import files that are older than the current
repository, so you'd have to change the repository in the past. I can imagine
that would be a nasty thing to do..

Losing file timestamps is an obstacle in getting my company to switch to a
source version control system - everybody uses file dates to track the
versions here (and it gets messy sometimes). I use CVS for my projects and
never use timestamps to track history. Will switch to SVN one of these days,
when I'm convinced cvs2svn works fine. Maybe it already does :)
