Yes, that will work, but it makes the change in two revisions. The
trunk will not exist at all during the time between the two commits,
which may be confusing or otherwise undesirable, especially if people in
the future attempt to diff against old revisions of the trunk.

I'd use mucc to do it all in a single revision:

    mucc -m "Delete old trunk and replace it with a copy of branch X" \
        rm "$REPO/prog/trunk" \
        cp "$BRANCHREV" "$REPO/prog/branches/X" "$REPO/prog/trunk"

mucc is available somewhere in the svn source code, but it's not
installed by default, and you might find it named either "svnmucc" or
"mucc" depending on the version of svn.
