Subversion provides the svndumpfilter program to help you... You can
"svnadmin dump" your entire local repository. Then "svndumpfilter" to
filter out specific parts of the repository that you want to keep.
You can "svnadmin create" local repositories for each part that you
want to eventually move to Google Code. "svnadmin load" the filtered
dumpfiles for each part into the local repository. Finally, sync each
local repository with Google Code. Then presumably you can remove the
temporary local repositories you created.
