If it creates parent dirs, then you can't load the dumpfile into a
repository that already has those directories. 'svnadmin repos' can't
look at the dumpfile and know the difference between a directory
that's being created just because it was a necessary intermediate path
component, or if it is a real versioned thing. So it doesn't let you
make stuff that already exists.

Perhaps. Or perhaps the dump format could make intermediate
directories, but add a header for those dir creations that says "Hey
Loader, if my repository already has this directory, don't sweat it."
