Or rather, just add an 'svn dump' command :-).

I'm +1 on it. It'll happen a lot faster with a patch, of course!

I think we'd want a pre-dump-hook, so that the repository has the
opportunity to deny clients such a resource-intensive operation.

Do you feel like implementing it? If so, please mail dev@ list...
