The general procedure is to take a backup that contains this revision in a
working state, load the new repo with revisions [0...x+1] and load the rest
from the dump of the current repository.

You didn't think VSS was a replacement for backups or magically made them
unnecessary, did you? Subversion can't do that, it can only assure that data
is stored in a certain way so that no information is lost if accesses go
through the Subversion API. Direct accesses or hardware failure can't be
intercepted that way.
