Incremental backups to "nightly" files

I just migrated my +10year old RCS/CVS repository to subversion. Modulo
MAC OSX issues with the library load paths (and some headaches with
viewcvs), I'm rather happy.

One thing I would like to do though is remote backup. I was running
rsync on the repositories to move everything from one computer to
another at a remote site. Rsync would copy over only the changes made
to the repository.

I would like to do the same with subversion. It looks like the svnadmin
dump --incremental would do the trick. The incrementals would get
dumped to separate files and rsync would take care of the rest.
However, it looks like I need to figure out some way of specifying a
revision range. I am hoping that somebody on the mailing list has
already come up with some funky script to do so, and if so, could they
share their solution.
