There is no built in support for this, but you might be able to do this:

On server1, create repos1 and do development.
On server2, create repos2 and do development.

After a few months, stop access to repos2.

svnadmin dump repos2

Transport the dump file from repos2 to server1.

On server1:
  svn mkdir http://blah/path/to/repos1/branches/repos2
  svnadmin load --ignore-uuid --parent-dir branches/repos2 repos1 <repos2.dump

Then you would have to merge the repos2 stuff into /trunk. This merge
might be painful though, because Subversion would not know that the
files in /branches/repos2/trunk correspond with the files in /trunk.
