Yes, to the extent that global-ignores and auto-props can help you. Personally
I would never expect (except in simple cases) to be able to get the exact
result I want through just those settings, so I would use "add" instead of
"import", then "revert" any files that I don't want added (and this will leave
them on my disk), review and adjust the properties of everything, and finally
commit the tree. I really do recommend that approach. I would be quite happy
if Subversion didn't have the "import" command.

Yes. There still will be occasions when one would like to remove a file from
version control and have it not be removed from working copies, but I suspect
they will not be frequent or bothersome enough to warrant a special feature.
