Totally agree -- svndumpfilter has bugs. I'm not sure what kind of
commitment we have to improving it (not saying there is no
committment, just not sure how strong it is -- kind of depends on who
jumps up and says "me!").

This is a bug, anyway, and it would be great if you could file it.
However, I don't want to falsely promise that filing it will get it
fixed within N days. We have a lot of issues to prioritize right now,
etc, etc.
