The purpose of svn_load_dirs.pl is to load multiple successive versions of a single project into a repository. For example, if you've kept a makeshift version control system by hand, by duplicating your source directory before every major change, and now want to import that history properly into a repository.

If instead you just want to import a number of different projects into a new repository, without history, you just use "svn import" and don't need svn_load_dirs.pl.
