Feature request: option for "svnadmin dump" to discard file-texts

Hello everybody,

I've got a feature request for svnadmin.
I'd like to have another commandline option with dump which tells svnadmin
*not* to dump the file's contents, but their size, properties and the
structure of the repository.

I envision changing the current header for files from eg.
        Node-path: trunk/test
        Node-kind: file
        Node-action: add
        Prop-content-length: 50
        Text-content-length: 98
        Text-content-md5: 05632196ed92f9120d5ab80f46366671
        Content-length: 148
to
        Node-path: trunk/test
        Node-kind: file
        Node-action: add
        Prop-content-length: 50
        Text-content-length: 0
        Real-text-content-length: 98
        Text-content-md5: 05632196ed92f9120d5ab80f46366671
        Content-length: 50
ie. discard the text-content from the dumped data, and include another telling
the real size of the file.

I'd like this feature because it's easy to analyse a repository by dumping;
but for my analyses I wouldn't need the text-contents; they'd just slow me
down (especially for big files over slow links, eg. ssh).

Tips, tricks, objections?

Thank you for all answers.

Regards,

Phil
