An alternative way to do this is
$ svnadmin dump /path/to/repos > dumpfile
$ mv /path/to/repos /path/to/repos_saved_just_in_case
$ sed -e 's/^\(Node-path: \)\(.*\)/\1trunk\/\2/;s/^\(Copy-from-path:
\)\(.*\)/\1trunk\/\2/' dumpfile > dumpfile.new
$ svnadmin create /path/to/repos
$ svnadmin load dumpfile.new
$ svn mkdir file:///path/to/repos/branches
$ svn mkdir file:///path/to/repos/tags

That is, dump, and manually change the Node-path: and Copy-to-path:
headers to insert trunk/.

The only problem is that if the strings "Node-path: " or "Copy-to-path:
" occur at the start of a line in any text file you have created, that
will get changed too.

It's slightly less tedious than "svn mv"ing everything to the trunk dir.
There may even a way to do it "properly" with svndumpfilter...
