Transfers from one repository to another

We are considering migrating the project I work on from multiple
SubVersion repositories to one unified repository.

We'd like to see that our files keep their svn history in the new
repository, but, as far as I can tell, that's not possible. (By
"history", I mean both the checkin comments and the diffs. In other
words, I want to have everything I had in the old individual
repositories in the new unified one.)

I've looked at svnsync, but that seems to be designed to mirror a one
repository in another. It doesn't seem to allow copying multiple
repositories into one.

My research seems to indicate this isn't possible. Is there a way to do

Failing that, if we wanted to move to a unified repository, what would
be the best way? My thought is to keep the old ones around, with write
permissions locked down tight, so we can go there to access the history,
at least.
