I'm not sure what you mean by "independent modules"... do you mean,
"put the projects into separate repositories"?

If so, then yes, you can 'svnadmin dump' the repository, then use
'svndumpfilter' and 'svnadmin load' to load the sub-project's
histories into independent repositories. See chapter 5 in the book.
