You sound as if I'm doing something strange. :-) I'm just using cvs2svn
on a simple cvs repository module. The dump file is just sitting there
after cvs2svn is done. I don't care about the dump file, and I did not
modify it in any way.

I've heard many times that the svn repository is supposed to be really
compact, but I have yet to see it. Maybe there's something wrong with my
environement, but if so I'd like to find out what it is. I'll try to
come up with a recepie tomorrow. Seeing is believing I suppose.
