I'd like to chime in here. It's pretty unsatsifying that svndumpfilter
outputs a file it cannot itself understand.

I'm attempting a moderately complicated move between repositories that
first requires a 'svndumpfilter exclude' followed by an 'svndumpfilter
include' but this command is not able to be pipelined with itself.
