Sounds like we need one or more of the following:

1.) boolean option to dump for whether to include the UUID
2.) boolean option to load for whether to use the UUID
3.) "svnadmin reposid"

(1) and/or (2) should be enough, but I have a feeling at least one user
will accidentally overwrite their repository's UUID, thus invalidating
all WCs. It might be nice to give them (3) to fix that sort of problem.

What would you suggest?
