p42svn dilemma

From: John Peacock <jpeacock_at_rowman.com>

I've been modifying p42svn:


to facilitate converting the Perl Perforce repository into a Subversion mirror
and I've come up against an inconvenience. In Perforce, it is permissible to
delete a change completely from the metadata (evil I know, but we have to cope).
  I really want to make sure that the rev number in Subversion is the same as
the change number from Perforce (since there is a history, on the dev list at
least, of referring to the change numbers and I don't want to make the list
archive unusable).

So, I need to have a way to fill in these missing changes (I've alread modified
the code to create a 1-to-1 relationship between changes and revs). What is the
smallest change I can make to the dumpfile to facilitate this? I need an
effectively empty rev (I don't want to pollute the repository with phantom
changes). Is there a way I can create a dumpfile entry that consists only of a
log message and no file changes?
