Interesting; I had tried this already without seeing the FAQ (Nathan Kidd
referenced the FAQ for "in-place import" in a different reply), but I was
missing the "checkout" step. That was the key to getting a proper working

This all works and does exactly what I was hoping for. Thanks. However, I
do think it would be slick to combine this into a single "in-place import"
command of some type. Alternatively, perhaps TortoiseSVN (and/or other
tools) could provide one-click in-place importing, implemented via the
"create folder->checkout to existing folder->add->commit" method. Nothing
more than a convenience method, but convenience *is* nice!

Thanks for the pointers!
