You'd have to move all of the directories containing the history too...
   Instead of the above you might dump repo1 and load it as
repo2/project1/ taking all of its sub-directories. However, if you have
searched already you probably know the disadvantages of combining repos
- that you can't keep the old revision numbers, break time ranges, etc.
