Straight dump to the last known proper revision.
Then incremental dump for any changes that might follow that mess.
Edit paths in the second dump.
Join both dumps in the new repository.

Be warned that if your repository is somewhat of a lot of files and of
significant size in total, it will not be the one fast operation.
