If someone comes to svn-dev with a repository that 'works', but fails
verification due to this problem, how do we repair it, given that 'dump'
no longer works?

I like the idea of flagging potential problems as soon as possible, but
not the idea of blocking 'svnadmin dump' when we don't really need to.
Is there any way we can convert this hard error into a warning? (Yes,
I realise that might be difficult, given that it's code in libsvn_repos,
not svnadmin itself).

Malcolm
