'svnadmin dump' reads out a complete representation of the repository - so,
yes, if a dump runs successfully, you can be certain your repository is 100%
working. Therefore, the best way to check a repository is "svnadmin dump
repos >/dev/null". "svnadmin verify" is nothing more than a slightly faster
and less thoughrough version of that command - it is possible for verify to
miss errors that dump detects.
