No, an import doesn't overwrite anything in the repository. It merely
imports a local unversioned directory into a specific place in the
repository, adding to whatever was already in the repository. No
client-side Subversion command can (permanently) delete anything from
the repository; that's the whole idea.

Other than that, I don't think I'm understanding your scenario or the
problem you're facing. You said you started a repository—presumably
by importing an existing project, or by starting a brand new project.
You say the code started at an incompatible version. Incompatible to
what? What new "starting point" are you asking about importing? What
diffs?

Are you saying you believe you've put stuff into your repository and
done it incorrectly somehow or messed it up in some way and therefore
want to start over? It might be best if you back up and start at the
beginning, describing how you made your repository, what you put in
it, what you did, and describe for us the difference between the way
your repository is now and the way you wanted it to be.
