 This will make the SVN Log history long and boring, but it appears there is not much else
that can be done if my users want to retain the development history. Otherwise I would just
SVN export it, remap it in a work area and commit it all in "one big go."

I dont think you have to create a new revision for each single file.

Just do svn copy and then do a svn delete for all files that you dont
want to have copied.


svn copy /foo/bar /new
svn delete /new/bar/baz

svn copy /foo/qwx /new/bar
svn delete /new/bar/qwx/abc


svn commit
