Preserve original filename on initial import?

From: Frank LaRosa <frank_at_franklarosa.com>

I imported an old web application project that had never been under
source control before. All of the files ended up with today's date in
the repository, rather than the original file dates.

Is there a way to preserve the original date when importing?

Losing the dates causes some real problems. For example, I have an FTP
task that sends the newest files from the document root to the server,
but now it thinks all the files are new and wants to spend hours
re-uploading them all. The web application has a process that builds
thumbnails out of full-sized images, and it too suddenly sees all the
images as new, and therefore thinks it has to spend hours computing new
thumbnails for all of them.

I read something about a way to manually change the date on one file
but I have many thousands of files so this won't work for me.
