Don't forget that when you import into Subversion, your files'
historical date/timestamps will be lost, unless you take
extraordinary measures, like importing each file individually, in
chronological order, and manually set the svn:date property of the
revision to the file's modification date/time... I believe there's a
script out there that does that for you, if you want it.
