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.


It is possible. As Erik said, you can svnadmin dump each repository,
then filter the dump with svndumpfilter to just contain your project
(unless you are merging the entire repositories). The disadvantage is
that your revision numbers will be out of order date-wise, which could
make things confusing. One solution is to use svndumptool, which is not
part of the SVN distribution.


You can use the merge command to intermix the revision numbers so that
they are ordered by date. Otherwise, with the standard dump, dump, load
method, you'll get all of repository A's revisions then all of
repository B's.
