I guess I did try it bofore and I got this error:

Revision 2003 committed as 2003.
Revision 2004 committed as 2004.
Revision 2005 committed as 2005.
Revision 2006 committed as 2006.
svndumpfilter: Invalid copy source path '/trunk'

The repo looks like this:

svn://x.x.x.x/mainproject/branches/
svn://x.x.x.x/mainproject/truck/
                          under branches:
                          /branches/this_is_what_we_want

You see, the developers have been using this branch for so long they don't want
to mess up the history on the trunk. So for historical reasons, they just want
branches/this_is_what_we_want as a new repo

If they need to see some older stuff (probably not), they'll just go and browse
the old trunck.
