To be fair, this is a Subversion question (not a TortoiseSVN question),
but we're happy to indulge the inquiry.

This is a valid point, but there are certain scenarios in which keeping
only the most recent revision is useful. I do this when creating certain
types of "repository templates", for which history is not important.

More specifically:

# svnadmin dump /path/to/repo YYY > /file/to/save

where YYY is the most recent revision number. Per the relevant
documentation at
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.ref.svnadmin.c.dump.html : "If
only LOWER is given, dump that one revision tree." So, providing only
the lower revision, and using the latest revision, will dump only the
latest revision.

To load just that one revision into another repository:

# svnadmin load /path/to/repo < /dump/file/from/earlier
