But there is a workaround.
1. Create a new folder in the repository using repo browser.
2. Checkout the new folder over the top of the folder you want to
import. You will get a warning about the folder not being empty. Now the
top level folder is versioned, but its content is not (yet).
3. Use the Add dialog to select which bits you want to add.
