Editing dump files has always been the approach to fixing up mistakes in
history. So I don't think we need a change in the FS backends. Instead
we need better dump file editing capabilities. svndumptool might go
part of the way. But ideally this would be built into svndumpfilter or
a new offical tool that edits dump files (rather than just filtering
nodes from a dumpfile).
