In reading the chapter that talks about svndumpfilter, I couldn't
determine if individual files could be specified for removal.


The command's own usage indicates it's for removing "paths that start
with", not a pattern to search the dumpfile for:

C:\>svndumpfilter help exclude
exclude: Filter out nodes with given prefixes from dumpstream.
usage: svndumpfilter exclude PATH_PREFIX...
