Yep, this is how I intended for it to be used. It was a crucial tool
for me when I recently decided to use an entirely new driver for the
'svnadmin dump' backend -- needed to make sure that the old code and
new code generated the same output before daring to commit that

Not likely. 'svnadmin dump' should be kept as straightforward as
possible, in my opinion.

Huh...I just had a thought. You know, as of my recent change to how
'svnadmin dump' works, I actually think one of the side-effects was
that the paths come outta there in a predictable, sorted order. Yeah,
yeah, I'm almost sure of it! Wow. So, dumpfiles generated with 0.24
and later should be already diffable, which ... means ... that I wrote
a debugging tool whose purpose was eliminated by the very improvements
it was used to affirm! Weird.
