I'm not sure that would work in your case because it is not the same
repository with a different UUID but a completely different
repository. OK, it contains the same history as your old repository,
but the merging means that all the revision numbers will be different.
There would be no way for subversion to update your existing working
copy because although the WC thinks it is on r123 that doesn't
correspond to what the repository knows as r123. Fresh checkout is the
only way to go.
