  eh, maybe what's there is already fairly clear.  i can read about
"svn import":

"You typically use this when you have an existing tree of files that
you want to begin tracking in your Subversion repository."

but maybe it's worth just extending that sentence to clarify its
availability later on.  just my $0.02 since, the first time i read
that so long ago, my first impression was that it was used
*exclusively* for initially populating a repository and that was it.
