Please be aware that the dump file is a mostly human-readable, yet not
plain-text format. In practice, if you are editing only the Node-path value (as
you did), you will probably be safe. Global search/replaces can bite you; just FYI.

That being said, cvs2svn is not 1.0 quality and doesn't include options to do
what you want (i.e. arbitrary layouts). However, you can easily move the
directories around after importing, ala

        svn mv file:///home/aj/subtest/proj/trunk \

etc. This will preserve history (but you won't be able to use ViewCVS to browse
past the move).
