SVN: Commit older file with date?

Here's a stumper for me.

I've looked in the FAQ, the online book, and even searched google for
answers. Can't seem to find an answer to this one.

SITUATION:
I have a collection of files, html, php, etc.. for an older web page
project. The files are dated Apr'2004, all the way back to May'2000 .
 I would like to keep the original file dates on the files, so I know
the last time I modified them. In the future, when it's been more
than 9 months last modified, I like to have the reminder to review the
file again. Also, when a group of files have been updated, they all
have similar update times, so I know what was going on when.

I just love Subversion, and would like to move this project to it as
soon as possible, to make it much easier to track changes, who, and when.

I would like to add them to my new SVN Repository called "myproject".
  But when I import or add them to the project, it saves the 'commit
dates' with the files.

I did figure out that the svn config option "use-commit-times = yes
" allows the 'checkout' to save the dates, instead of using the
current date/time.

But I can't seem to find an option to save the original dates on the
files during the import process, so when I export, the original dates
are there.

I could to it with properties, and write something to sneak it into a
label /property. But that won't be easily seen when I do a 'ls -l'.

QUESTION:
Is there a way to store files with their original date/times into the
SVN repository?

Thanks, -FRuG
