This is the fatal flaw in svndumpfilter. It's been discussed quite a
bit on the developer list, and most think that only solution is to
rewrite 'svndumpfilter' to require access to the original
repository. History simply cannot be filtered by filtering a
stream; the filtering process sometimes needs random-access to all
of the history.

In other words, 'svndumpfilter' needs to die, and the functionality
needs to be pushed into 'svnadmin dump' directly.
