This is a very explicit choice. RCS/CVS have damaged many files
because the user didn't specify -kb on the initial import. Many times,
this was discovered too late to repair the damage (ie the original
file was gone by the time it was discovered). Subversion won't change
the content of your files until *explicitly* told to do so.
