svnadmin verify + rep-cache.db

Hi all,

while repairing some bad repository breakage we noticed that
svnadmin verify does not check whether offsets mentioned in
rep-cache.db point to valid reps.

In some cases I had to append repaired reps after the changed-paths
section in revision files and leave broken reps in place to avoid
adjusting offsets everywhere.

So now 'svnadmin verify' runs fine. But when the rep-cache is
referred to during commit we can still run into reps that are broken.

Obviously we'll either have to fix up the rep-cache as well,
or simply delete it. But the point is that 'svnadmin verify'
does not complain.

Would it be feasable to add this as a separate pass of 'svnadmin verify'?
Should I file an issue about this?

For instance, good output could look like this:

$ svnadmin verify repos
* Verified revision 1.
...
* Verified revision N.
* Verified rep-cache.

$

And errors like this:

$ svnadmin verify repos
* Verified revision 1.
...
* Verified revision N.
svnamdin: rep-cache entry '8fe47fa166154fc6e7f2e78366591c470ba75cf7' is invalid
svnadmin: Malformed representation header
