Properly speaking, we ought to suggest you ask the users - at - subversion dot tigris dot org list, since this isn't a TSVN (client) problem. But my ideas are...

If that's a single revision file in an fsfs repository, then (as Ben noted) you are stuck.

If you mean that your repository dump file, using svnadmin dump and svnadmin load, is too big, then yes, you can split the dump file using the -r option to svanadmin dump.

If your repository uses the now-old-looking Berkeley DB format, then an svnadmin dump and load can be used to convert it to fsfs, and may reduce the size of its largest files.
