so if I get you right, your only interested to to preserve the
pre-subversion timestamps?

In that case I would "ls * > tempfile" and "svn propset
LastModifiedTimestamp --revprop -r ImportRev --file tempfile repoURL"

You could also, as Graeme mentioned already, use a versioned property.
In that case a would add an empty directory to the repository first,
check it out over your import folder, 'svn add' all files, set the
custom property on all files and finally commit.

If you are only interested to preserve the original timestamps of the
imported files and not plan to update the properties on each commit, I
would then remove the properties again and commit again. Otherwise you
are stuck with the original value for ever. Might be irritating 8-)
