Removing a hojillion "empty for padding" revisions

From: Scott Hughes <shughes_at_dalsemi.com>

When I migrated my repo over from vss, I did a lot of svndumpfilter editing
to shuffle all my projects around. Somewhere in there, I forgot a "drop
empty revs" flag. Now when I edit one of my dumpfiles, I see about a
hojillion or so of these "empty revs" in the dump. Since I often do a full
"dump | tar | gzip" for backup, the space isn't that big of a concern since
I'm sure those messages compress well. However, the time to do this backup
is actually a bit longer than I think it would be without them.

Is there an easy way to remove them? The svndumpfilter "drop empty revs"
option seems to only remove empty revs it would have created as a result of
filtering, not empty revs from previous filter operations. btw, I
understand that this will hose all of the working copies I have and I
consider that okay.

Thanks in advance.
