Actually, I don't know much of anything to do with this <g>. So I'm not sure
what you mean by "Of course, you know that file:/// access doesn't have
anything to do with your xampp installation?" I know svn is using apache,
but I'm not sure what that's got to do with the path I feed the import
command.

I was able to import the files into the repository...but the naming seems
backwards. If I'm in dir A and want to push files into B, I'd call it an
export. If starting from B, and pulling from A, I'd call it an import. I've
never seen the terms used as they are here but adapting is easy. Maybe it's
an svn thing, not tortoise.
