This is not within svnadmin's power -- it's just getting input from
stdin, it never sees the filename as an argument (the shell sets all
this up).

I think it's a good interface. The (hard-learned) lesson is that when
you have a failure, and your lifeboat is a backup file, the *first*
thing to do is always to make a another copy of that backup.
