I guess you mean "svndumpfilter" since there is no "svnadmin filter",
but I don't think you need that at all. I think you just need to
"svnadmin dump" the Project A repository and "svnadmin load" it into
the Program Z repository, probably using the "--parent-dir" argument.
Import Project A anywhere within the Program Z repository. Then check
out a working copy and use normal "svn mv" commands to rearrange it
to suit you.

If you frequently find yourself needing to combine projects like
this, you'll probably find it easier if you just put all the projects
into a single repository to start with.
