I attach the latest version of my dump/load cross-checking patch.
Do we want to commit this? I think we should. It has been very useful in uncovering dump/load bugs and inconsistencies.
It needs a bit more work first, as noted in the log message:
† - Put back the dumpfile parser's ability to check for well-formed dumpfile
††† contents, which has been temporarily stripped out here in order to
††† achieve more generic parsing, as some dump/load tests rely on that.
† - Bypass authz when dumping with svnrdump, otherwise a partial dump is
††† obtained for tests using authz, making those tests fail.
† - Make optional -- enabled by a configure option?
