You can always duplicate your repository, then do an 'svn rm' on all
the stuff you didn't want to copy.. ;-)

If you object to having your new repositories contain copies of all
your other stuff in its history, you may have to use the

        svn dump oldrepos | filter | svn load newrepos

trick to exclude certain pieces.

Not sure how easy or hard it is to do the latter, though.
