How dump/load saved my life and fixed my marriage

...well not really, but very close to it :)

Stupid BDB. The database files are portable across
endianess/architectures, but the transaction logfiles _are not_.
Pointless to be just half assed.

I needed to move the Linux 1394 repository from it's current home on an
UltraSPARC Linux system (big-endian) to a new Itanium dual CPU Linux box
(little-endian). No good using the raw tools.

I had forgotten about the new dump/load mechanism until BenS pointed me
to it. 503 revs dumped in less than 2 minutes. 27meg dump file loaded on
the other server in 5 minutes. Worked flawlessly. This repo incorporated
both branches and tags, all of which have been reproduced.

Thanks BenS!
