Make a project version already in repo to be after (in revision history) a new added version

Hi all,

 I'll try to explain my problem:

  - I've a long term project with 2 key release versions:
      V_1 and V_2.
  - V_1 is not under version control (of any kind).
  - V_2 is imported in version control after 3 months of development
since V_1, so the initial V_2's version in repo and V_1 differ in
hundreds of changes.
  - We continue V_2's development using the repository and making
several revisions.

 Now, we're asked to insert V_1 in the repository as the first revision
and V_2 as the second revision keeping the revision log from the current
repository (newrev = oldrev+1 in this scenario), so the changes between
V_1 and V_2 get inserted in the repository and we can continue
development knowing where we came from.

 I've searching and I think the solution is:
  1. Make a dump file of the old repository containing V_2.
  2. Create new repository.
  3. Import V_1 as first revision of new repository.
  4. Do 'svnadmin load olddump' in the new repository where "olddump" is
the old repository's dump.

 Is this the right solution? Can anybody point me in the right

 Thanks in advance :)
