File time stamps on initial import

I am new to svn, so I'd appreciate a pointer to the answer if this
is a well known problem. I just installed subversion 1.4.6 on my
RedHat EL 4 system. I read the book. I made a repository with
svnadmin create. I imported my existing project into it with
svn import (using the svn server and the FSFS store). I did the
initial checkout with svn checkout.

To my horror, the time stamps on all my files were updated to the
time when I did the import. I realize it's not really important
any more what those time stamps were, except this project has
been going on for many years and I would like to be able to see
when I last worked on a particular file.

So: Right now, while it's not too late to delete the whole repository
and start over with another copy of my project, can someone tell me
how to import a project into a repository and keep the original time
stamps? When I make changes and commit them, then of course the
time stamps should be updated accordingly.
