He's worried about time, not space. svnadmin dump --deltas is perfectly
adequate for space, but the amount of time it takes is still
proportional (at least) to the amount of fulltext represented in the
repository.

We don't anticipate requiring a dump and load cycle prior to 2.0, but we
may have to revisit this issue before 2.0 comes out. It was one thing
to tell our 0.x users that they needed to perform a dump and load even
when repository size made that prohibitive; it will be another to tell
our 1.4 users that.
