svn import and svn add: can't --no-ignore

According to The Book [1], svn import and svn add are supposed to
accept a --no-ignore option:

> As well as svn status, the svn add and svn import commands also
> ignore files that match the list. You can override this option for
> a single instance of any of these commands by using the --no-ignore
> command-line flag.

That doesn't seem to work, though:

$ svn import --no-ignore foo $REPO -m ""
Subcommand 'import' doesn't accept option '--no-ignore'
Type 'svn help import' for usage.

$ svn add --no-ignore foo
Subcommand 'add' doesn't accept option '--no-ignore'
Type 'svn help add' for usage.

Indeed, svn help import and svn help add do not list a --no-ignore
option. Is it a code bug or a documentation bug? I'd say the former,
since it seems like a useful functionality... But I get no hits in
the issue tracker searching for "no-ignore"; none relevant for just
"ignore". Thoughts?
