Filtering and moving a repo

Hi all,

We're using SVN via Apache and I want to filter out a file from a repo A. So I figured I'd do:
1. dump the repo with svnadmin dump /var/svn/repos/A
2. filter dump file with svndumpfilter exclude Path/to/file/to/remove --drop-empty-revs --renumber-revs
3. load the filtered dump file into an empty repo B
4. mv /var/svn/repos/A /var/svn/repos/_A
5. mv /var/svn/repos/B /var/svn/repos/A

Since repo B was empty it should get the UUID of repo A (from the dump file), so this operation should be
transparent to svn clients ??

I wanted to ask before I possibly f-ck it up for clients that have repo A on their machines.

TIA
/R
