Hi Andy,

Thanks for your reply. I am coming to the same conclusion that it
doesn't really matter about the order.

One thing though, I wasn't planning on editing the dumpfile, I was just
going to do dump the existing repository, create a new 1.5 repository
(with my desired structure) and then reload the old repository into the
newly created repository. I am not too sure what would happen if I try
to load a 1.4 dump file into a 1.4 repository though.

In the end, I might just try the svn mv I think.
