Neither I nor Subversion know anything about what you or maybe your development enviranment consider a 'project'. Subversion is all about storing and versioning files, everything else like the interpretation of directories is up to you.

Since you have these four project already split up into different directories, you can import that tree into subversion and nothing will change for you, they will still be as separate or joined as you want them. Again, this interpretation of what makes a project is up to you. For your info, we have several (sometimes also strongly related) C++ projects here in a single Subversion repository and it works well.
