This is probably a little tricky to get right on the first attempt, so
first you should back up your current working copy (including all the
.svn directories).

Then: make another copy of it somewhere, say OLD. Use svn revert in OLD
to undo all the local changes, and do your import from OLD.

Then cd over to the pristine copy of your locally modified copy, and use
svn status to find all the local modifications. Copy all modified files
over to OLD (overwriting what is there), do all deletes and adds in OLD,
until OLD looks just like your locally modified version, and svn status
there returns the same thing. Then commit those changes.

Then back up your repository.
