I don't understand how your old trunk can be a tag or tags? That
seems confused, or at least I am. :)

Sure. Create a temporary repository and use cvs2svn to get your old
CVS repository into it. Then use "svnadmin dump" to dump the temp
repository to a text file. Then use "svndumpfilter" to extract just
the trunk from that dump. Send that into "svnadmin load" pointing it
at your main repository and using the --parent-dir argument to tell
it where in the main repository to load it. You may then later have
to "svn mv" it in your main repository to rename or move it again if
