No, but if you don't have file access to the source repository you can
use svnsync to copy it to a location where you do have access. Then you
can svnadmin dump/filter and load to your desired project location. The
dump/filter/load is a one-time process and has the problems of making
your date ranges non-contiguous and changing the revision numbers of the
imported content that have already been mentioned. But, it does let you
put the project where you want and keep the (renumbered) history of changes.
