I think you can use svn_load_dirs.pl for that purpose. I'm not sure if
you'll have to remove the .svn folders from your snapshots beforehand or
not, but I think not. (Just treat those snapshots as unversioned vendor
images, not as existing working copies.)

The other advantage of the script is that you can resolve moves/renames
using it, though you'll have to tell it what you've done.
