Done as you suggested.

But there's a catch:  After uploading, while adding the svn_load_dirs
package to the cygwin-pkg-maint file I noticed that there's already a
package svn-load from Jari Aalto, which is apparently already the same
thing per the setup.hint file:

  sdesc: "An enhanced import facility for Subversion"
  ldesc: "A free replacement for svn_load_dirs, an enhanced import facility for
  Subversion. The utility will commit a single changeset that alters a
  repository subtree to match a local directory. It detects filenames
  that have been removed or created, and uses this knowledge to prompt
  the user about file and directory movements within the subtree. An
  automatic tagging option is also supported. Svn-load is well suited
  for vendor branch maintenance, where external source is routinely
  imported and merged."

Does it really make sense to have this twice?
