It's a bit peculiar to have an "--ignore-externals" option in "svn
import" since the purpose of "svn import" is to import an unversioned
directory into a repository. So that option would only apply if
you're importing from an existing working copy into a different
repository, which is an unusual use of "svn import", though it does
know about this use and does already know to ignore the .svn
