Create the new directories, and move the old directories under trunk,
all with svn commands. Yes, that preserves history -- unlike CVS, in
Subversion moves are supported in the machinery and are version

That sounds like a good idea. Be sure to train them to ask for trunk,
or a specific branch, when checking out. If you ask for the top of
the repository you get all the branches and all the tags, as separate
files in your working directory.
