svn-backup-dumps.py [Re: svnbackup.py]

svn-backup-dumps.py is a very useful script.

I have two suggestions for it.

1. If we runs it without arguments, it shows not-user-friently
   error message. I think it must show a help message.

2. If we runs it with non-existing directory
   as <dumpdir>, it shows not-user-friently error message too.
   I think it must create dumpdir automatically or show the
   message that you must create dumpdir in advance.

Thank you for your useful script.
