Can you set svn:ignore for imports? I didn't think you could.

I'm using svn for my linux servers /etc.
I set it up back when it couldn't version symlinks (and I didn't know
about asvn, but sure will be checking it out now), so I got around that
by doing the following

svn mkdir ...repo/etc
cd /tmp/
svn co ...repo/etc
mv .svn/ /etc
cd /etc

"svn st" should now list everything in your /etc with a question mark.
As with import you can't just go "svn add *" because that will try and
add the fifo's and stop (even if you svn:ignore them)
Instead for all the fifo's do
  svn propedit svn:ignore .
And add the FIFOs
Now svn st will not list those, so you can add everything else by doing
svn add `svn st | grep -v \? | cut -c 3-

Then svn ci
to check it in.
