Unfortunately that is the way Subversion implements import. Most
people don't like it, which is why we document an alternative. We
could maybe wrap that method up to make it easier, but that is not
without its problems either, notably the fact that 2 commits are
required. There is an issue open for this.

Is any revision control software so simple that you don't even need to
know the basics?
