One of the discussed use-cases is one that also exists in CVS:
svnadmin dump -r1000:HEAD | svnadmin create-and-load /newrepository

(In CVS I think you have to do some tweaking of the ,v files to remove
diffs, if I remember The CVS Book correctly.)

I can see how this would be helpful for Subversion, but not if it changed
revision numbers. The most recent discussion sounds like revision numbers
wouldn't be restored in this situation, because the new repostitory would
have to start over at 1. Or maybe I'm still misunderstanding.
