It's no problem :)

I would:

check out a temporary working copy
cd to the temporary working copy
svn mkdir trunk branches tags
for every item that is not trunk branches or tags
        svn mv item trunk
svn commit
delete temporary working copy


If you have other existing working copies that you would like to
continue to use, you can "svn switch" them to the new location of
those files. For example, if your repo is $REPO and you had
previously created this working copy using "svn checkout $REPO wc",
then now you can use "svn switch $REPO/trunk wc".
