svn mkdir http://path/to/repos/trunk/
[for each entry in the repository root:]
svn move http://path/to/repos/entry http://path/to/repos/trunk/entry
svn mkdir http://path/to/repos/branches/
svn mkdir http://path/to/repos/tags/

There's probably a way of wildcarding the moves, but that's the basic
principle. In 1.1 everything will work properly with the history before
the move, but the history is still maintained in 1.0.

HTH,
