For history:
Last Saturday on IRC, I suggested 'svnradmin', but this can be misleading
too, as users might expect it do everything 'svnadmin' can, which is clearly
impossible for security reasons.

(A much older suggestion was moving the code into svnsync as they are
related tools)

But I'm fine with just keeping 'svnrdump' even for loading. It just uses
'dump' for referring that it processes dumpfiles (like svndumpfilter does),
instead of to just dumping the repository.
