I use to use a script called 'versioner' which just made a copy of the file
into .<file>.nnn where 'nnn' was a zero-padded number that got automatically
versioned.

I still use it occasionally as a one-off backup program (easier to use than
cp /path/to/file/file /path/to/file/.file.bak) But since I've started using
subversion, I needed a way to import as many as 100 of these backups for each
of about 50 files. So, I wrote versioner_to_subversion, which works really
well in my case. Maybe the OP can adapt it to suit. It basically does what
you've described above (copy, add, commit, copy, commit, repeat.)
