If you want to rename the repository itself, keeping the internal
structure intact:
TSVN->relocate

If you want to re-import an existing working copy into a new
repository, you first have to make it not be a working copy (sorry for
mangled English), then import it and check out again, or do an
in-place import (see the manual to understand how to do this.

What do you mean by un-check? That's not a term anyone here is
familiar with. If you make up your own terminology you have to expect
people to misunderstand.

But this is a very infrequent operation. Subversion is all about long
term maintenance of a project, not creating one, destroying it and
creating it again. Why would we complicate the user interface by
adding support for something that would almost never be used?

The one place I can agree with you is the way Subversion handles
import, in that an imported folder structure does not become a working
copy, and as described in the subversion manual you have to import and
then checkout - yes, silly. What I describe as import-in-place is a
workaround, but it should really have better support in core
subversion. But again, import is something you do very rarely so there
is little incentive to spend time improving it when there are more
pressing matters to attend to.
