relocating an SVN repository

I need to move an SVN repository from one domain to another. I would
like to do this in a seamless fashion so that users don't have to run
svn switch or check out a fresh copy of the repository from the new
location. Is this possible?

I tried to accomplish this by using apache2's RedirectMatch directive.
Here's what I put into the config file on the old server:

RedirectMatch permanent ^/svn/reposName/(.*)$

If I access the repository through a web browser using the old address
the redirect works properly. If I try to do an svn checkout using the
old address it fails with the following message:

bash-3.2$ svn co http://www.old-domain.com/svn/reposName/trunk reposName
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/reposName/trunk'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/reposName/trunk': 301 Moved Permanently

I've confirmed that checking out the repository by using the new address
works properly, so it's not a misconfiguration on the new server. Is
what I'm trying to do possible, or am I going to have to tell all of my
users to run svn switch?
