[GSoC update] git-remote-svn: Week 10

From: Ramkumar Ramachandra <artagnon_at_gmail.com>

After an extended weekend of hacking, I'm happy to report that I've
finally managed to finish the SVN client (now renamed svndumpr) and
validate it against 10,000 revisions of the ASF repository. It doesn't
look like I can go much further with the validation until the
dumpfilev3 parser is completed due to hardware limitations. However,
Avar has been kind enough to lend me access to a more powerful machine
on which I intend to run more tests over the next few days.

The last patch is a nice validation script; I would request everyone
who's interested in the project to test it against their repositories
so we can weed out any remaining bugs. The code is also available on
my GitHub [1]. Also, please review the series thoroughly and don't
hesitate to ask trivial questions: I'm new to developing with libsvn

Please note that it has been built and tested only against the
Subversion trunk: for Subversion 1.6, you can try using my
ra-svn-1.6. Also, there seems to be some unresolved issue on 64-bit
systems. We're working on fixing this.

Final note: I'll begin preparing to merge this into the Subversion
trunk soon.

Thanks for reading.
