Merging Multiple Repositories in One

Hi folks,

I have around 10 projects for a same client lying all around my computer. I
currently have a separate repository for all of them. Time after time, I
seem to be running into trouble managing all of them separately. I want to
merge all these repositories into one directory (which will be a global
repository for that client) and have 10 sub-folders under that one each for
different projects.

This is how I would do it, which I am sure involves a lot of mucking around.

1) Create a new repository for client on the subversion server.
2) Create a folder for the client on my machine.
3) Digg out all my client projects from my computer and put their clean
copies (by deleting all _svn files) in the new folder.
4) Import everything in this folder into the new repository.
5) Create a new empty folder and checkout everything from the new
6) Delete the previously created folder and all the client project folders
from all over the place and only deal with the folder created in step 5) in

Now this is a hard way to do it, but I am sure there is an easier way. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.
