Either you believe in the source control system, or you don't.  If you 
don't, we shouldn't be using it. :)  We've already got copies of the way 
the tree is now, which are easily retrievable with SVN - so I wouldn't 
be nervous about changing it.

I think this is the way to go, in order to make the histories of the 
files in the main source branch simpler once we move there.  Refactor in 
prototype2/, then move.

This would be OK too.

This seems silly to me.  If you know you're going to refactor, why do 
you want to bother to make the files in the main src area contain all 
that extra history?
