redux: versioning unversioned metadata + anonsvn strategies....

Thanks to someone who seemed excessviely interested in flaming me for
wanting to get text dumps, it seems no one paid attention to the
questions I was actually asking, so I'm going to ask them again...

1) Metadata:
a) The fact that metadata is unversioned makes updates of log messages
   more dangerous than they need to be.
b) The fact that metadata is unversioned means incremental dumps of
   the database, which are useful for all sorts of reasons, don't
   include updates to things like log messages.
Therefore, there there any chance of revisiting the decision not to
version metadata, or at least of finding a way of fixing b)?

2) AnonSVN:
I can see to obvious ways to run a "shadow" AnonSVN server mirroring
an original in near-real time:
a) Do an incremental dump after every commit, and push it to the anon
   sever(s) where they get loaded -- only 1) gets in the way here.
b) Send over the db transaction logs and replay them, but I
   don't really know how to do this.
Any advice available on this?
