In alternative:

1. Branch current Project A (the May Project B Mod 2) as Project B. (svn copy
/projectA/trunk /projectB/trunk)
2. Do a reverse Merge from current trunk (HEAD/whatever revision HEAD works out
to be) to the end of the Mar Project A Mod 3 and commit that to Project A. (svn
merge -r ${HEAD_REV}:${OLD_REV})

As Simon said, it'd be easier to just branch Project A from an older revision of
current trunk and then keep current trunk as Project B.

But that's the two main options. It's just a matter of what you want to keep as
the current trunk. Either way, it is probably easiest to do with TSVN since it
makes it easy to select the revisions/etc with a few simple clicks instead of
having to figure it all out and then figure out to apply it on the command-line
interface.

HTH,

Ben
