Good idea, but I prefer to delete the old repository and, yes, I need
to merge.

(The solution I posted in my previous message worked, I was able to
import all the parts of the old repository I needed. It is not obvious
so the moral lesson is: think twice before organizing into several
repositories. Unlike CVS, Subversion allows you to change the
directories inside one repository but not between repositories.)
