Correct, just like 'cvs import', 'svn import' does *not* convert your
current working directory into a working copy. It just adds it to the
repository, that's it.

There is no plan, but it's been discussed before.

Right now, we have a runtime option to make files always have their
timestamps set to the 'last commit time' in the repository. But we
haven't scheduled a timestamp-preservation feature.
