Why would you want to do that? An import (i.e. add) is a versioned
change of the repository. Therefor the revision number is incremented.
You should not be too concerned about what the revision looks like at
all. As soon as you have more than one project in a repository the
revision number can change without your project's code changing at all.

So don't think of the revision number as a "version", rather do your own
revision no. => version mapping using tags, e.g. tag r1234 of a specific
path as version 1.2. Leave the revision number as it is: A unique
changeset identifier.
