Here's a possible trick:

Organize your files into buckets, categorized by original dates. Then
commit each "bucket" of files in chronological order. This results in a
bunch of revisions in the repository. Then you can tweak each
revision's 'svn:date' property, so it *appears* that each bucket of
files was committed on a certain date.

In other words, because a revision's svn:date property is tweakable, you
can make the "commit times" of the files match the original times.
