Use the '--dumponly' option to cvs2svn.py, which will not try to commit anything
to the Subversion repository (it will just create the dumpfile). Then use the
'--parent-dir' option to 'svnadmin load' to import the dumpfile into the desired

This should roughly be the sequence:

        cvs2svn.py -v --dumponly /path/to/cvs/Proj2
        svnadmin load --parent-dir ProjB/trunk < cvs2svn-dump
