BTW, instead of a 'zfs clone', a plain

% svnadmin create shadow-subversion
% svnadmin dump /srv/repos/asf | svndumpfilter include subversion | svnadmin load shadow-subversion

and then using cross-repository merging from shadow-subversion to
/srv/repos/asf/subversion is another option that lets us work in the
fixes with history.
