+1 for keep the history.

+1 in theory,  'cos looking at our SVN tree we do seem to use /gump/X/trunk
when we have a sub-project X, but see below.

Since today folks (1) checkout Gump from SVN and (2) checkout metadata from
CVS into ./metadata, I don't see a hardship of having two places. That said,
will SVN allow us to do this w/o pain? Can we have an empty
/repos/asf/gump/trunk/metadata become a local working directory, and then
checkout /repos/asf/gump/metadata/trunk into it? I suspect not. I think we
"got away with it" because we were using two separate SCMs. Something will
have to give, I'm just not sure what, i.e. (1) no empty ./metadata w/ a
FILLME.txt (2) ../metadata not ./metadata (3) not separate SVN trees.
