You might be able to keep your history by using svnadmin dump,
svndumpfilter and svnadmin load. svndumpfilter can be used to filter
out certain paths in the dump file, so you could use it to convert your
dump file into only Project1 related stuff and load that into a new
repository. Then do the same for the other projects. This may be
complicated depending on how your current repository is structured,

I think there will be gaps in the revisions, though.

Well, Subversion doesn't keep any information about the repository
anywhere else, except in the working copy. But you could have
references to the old repository in your httpd.conf, which you would,
obviously, need to fix.
