I know that this doesn't help you with creating the dump file (i.e. if
--trunk-only doesn't completely eliminate the tags), but you can use

        svndumpfilter exclude tags --drop-empty-revs --renumber-revs

to strip out those from the dumpfile prior to importing to a subversion
repository. Use it like this:

        cat dumpfile.before | svndumpfilter ... > dumpfile.after

and then use

        svnadmin load --parent-dir /project /path/to/repository < dumpfile.after

and it will load only the trunk/ files...
