Branko, you rock. Thank you so much for finding the root of the problem.

Just never got around to it, "in the interest of rapidly getting the
product to market." It's an option in the dumpstream spec; I figured
we'd put it into version 2 of the dumpstream format someday. Feel
free to add them, though.

Timestamps? The only timestamps in the dumpstream are the values of
the svn:date property attached to revisions. That's generated by
libsvn_fs when you commit a revision... so the dumper has nothing to
do with it; those datestrings were made by the repository long ago.

[Regarding datestamps: ATM, the client knows how to parse old-style
and new-style (ISO8601) stamps; Hadaka plans to change the server
libraries to start producing *only* ISO8601 formats RSN.]
