Unfortunately, no. You'll have to move everything "by hand" to it's new
location. You might want to take a look at RSVN[1], a Python utility
which allows multiple operations to occur on a the repository side as a
single atomic commit, instead of multiple ones, such as in this case.

Hope that helps !
