Upps, sorry, I meant 'svnadmin dump' and 'svnadmin load'. Sorry for the
misinformation. 'svndumpfilter exclude' would help to filter out unwanted
files.

By the way, you could also get around by 'svn export' and 'svn import', but
you will lose all you history and retain just the last revision.

As a last resort, I would also try this:

0. create a fresh new repository
1. for each revision that does not contain huge file, check it out or export
it.
2. extract the log mesasge of this revision.
3. check it into a new repository, with the old message.
4. Burn old repository onto the DVDs ;)
5. Remove the old repository from the disk.
6. Ask all your users to migrate to a new repository. (Or maybe just renaming
new repository to have the old name would work?)

Regards,
Saulius
