Ah. I think that means "you've been reading the documentation for a
recent version of Subversion, but you're actually using an older
one." The syntax to "svn import" was changed recently (I don't
recall when "recently" was, somewhere since 0.23, I think). Used to
be "svn import URL [path ...]", which seems to be what your svn is
expecting. Nowadays, it's "svn import [path] URL...", which is what
you're typing.

I don't see anywhere in the thread where you've told us what version
of Subversion you're using (svn --version, as you might suppose). I
dare to suspect it's "old." You really want to be using "new".
