Sounds like the question liwenxi@cnpc.com.cn asked just about 8 hours
ago. Here's what I wrote at the time:

These are the three commands to look up:

svnadmin dump
svndumpfilter
svnadmin load

I don't know of a more graceful solution. (See also subversion issue
516: <http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=516>)

Try google with the words "svn" "obliterate". You'll find others who
have been in your situation. For example: <http://svn.haxx.se/dev/
