Move a single file to a different repository with its history

I'd really like to be able to use external repositories as a way of keeping
code shared between multiple repositories. The problem I have is that I
don't always know in advance what code should be in the shared repository
(that others suck in on a checkout). That means I need to be able to move a
file -- with its history intact -- from one repository to another if it
becomes clear that it should be in the shared repository.

So, is there an easy way to move a single file from one repo to another while
maintaining its history?

I know this can be done with svnadmin dump and grunking about in the result,
but I'm hoping there is an easier way. Any hints would be appreciated.
