load/dump between different OS's?

Is it possible/supported to do a svnadmin dump from one operating system, and
then do a svnadmin load of that repository onto a different OS?

The reason I am asking is that the "Migrating a Repository" section
in Ch. 5 of the Subversion book does
not explicitly state that this is supported, while the "Berkely DB" section
states that Berkely DB environments are not portable between different OS's.

So does the "dump" contain BerkeleyDB-specific information?

The "Repository Backup" section states that "A full backup of the repository is
quite literally a duplication of the entire repository directory (which includes
the Berkeley database environment)." But it appears there is a distinction
between a "backup" and a "dump"? This section is somewhat confusing because
it toggles back and forth between "incremental dump" language and the
"backup" language.

I did a search in the mailing list archives, and found someone who tried
to dump/load from redhat to gentoo. I just want to make sure this is
valid/supported functionality.
