Not in the case I described in my earlier post. But I did experiment with --incremental and the result there was a tiny little dumpfile, which perhaps just had one revision in it.

I didn't try --deltas. The page

  http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.2/svn.ref.svnadmin.c.dump.html

says, "... deltified dumpfiles are more CPU intensive to create ..." which makes me think the deltas get recalculated by --deltas, not just grabbed from the revs/ files directly. So it might not help, huh?
