svn import --no-ignore not implemented

I just started to experiment with subversion.

When I tried to import a vendor branch of a hardware driver,
subversion would ignore the proprietary *.o in the package.

Reading up in the Book I found the svn:ignore property,
but that can only be used on repositories and workarea,
and before the import I have neither.

Then there is the global-ignores option in the config file.
Editing the config file works, but that is awkward when
wrapping the svn import into a script.

The natural way would be to have command line switches
to replace the default ignore list. At least there should be
svn import --no-ignore to void the default list.

The Book mentions that CVS's '-I !' is not supported but
no rational why that is so.

Is it simply not yet implemented, or am I missing something?

Cheers, Alfred.
