Yeah, I was feeling uneasy about changing a top level struct like
svn_client_ctx_t that is used all over libsvn_client. The other option is to
use a single member struct that only commit.c uses and add an extra
parameter to import*() functions. If that sounds like a reasonable option, I
can try that.

Another option is a variant of the first patch - in addition to checking for
an empty src dir, let's also check for an empty new_entries array (array of
new parent directories to be created in the repo). That should take care of
"svn import -m "" empty-dir URL-OF-REPOS/new-dir".

Thanks
