PVCS convert/import?

From: <james-tigris_at_jrv.org>

I have a bunch of old PVCS (the old DOS version) archives I've like to
place in an SVN repository. I'd like to retain the data and the
authorship and timestamp information and place it in an existing
repository.

I've got a program that is producing an output essentially similar to
the output of 'svnadmin dump'. Is this the right direction to go -
can 'svnadmin load' safely merge a dump stream into a repository?

If so I have a few questions:

1. What do I do for a UUID, or should I omit that line altogether?

2. What do I do for the Revision-number: fields?

If this is an undesirable approach for whatever reason can this be
accomplished via repeated commits on a client to get the data into the
repository, followed by propsets to change the timestamps and
authorships?
