How to import a vendor branch from Subversion into Subversion?

Hi,

as far as I can tell, the basic advice for importing a vendor branch
snapshot into a Subversion repository is to first get an export of the
branch, then import it into one's own repository (actually, the
Subversion documentation does not appear to assume that the vendor
actually uses Subversion for a software package).

So far so good: I don't want the version info and history from
upstream here.

However, I _do_ want the directory metadata, which files are binary,
which files are text, which have which mime-type, which files are
ignored and so on. But I don't want keyword expansion (_if_ upstream
uses any keyword magic, it is important that the keywords remain as
they were exported from upstream).

So how do people do that?
