We don't have a good use case for 'bump' from the client side in general. In relation to "svnrdump load", a user who has exclusive access to the repository (so can guarantee no simultaneous commits) should be provided with a way to start the loaded revisions at a particular revision number, the same as for "svnadmin load". However, we should think carefully about how this relates to using svnrdump with non-exclusive commit access. For example, it might make more sense to design a way for the client to specify to the server:
"Here's a commit with changes in it;
instead of simply "insert N empty revs".
