it seems that svndumpfilter makes a dumpfile with SVN-fs-dump-format-version: 3
that it refuses to touch further, but svnadmin takes this and creates a repos
that when dumped again has SVN-fs-dump-format-version: 2 so you can filter it
again. I suppose it makes sense, but not to me.

Anyhow, I now find that svnadmin load is renumbering the revisions that were
dropped. That won't be very nice to clients with existing working folders. Is it
possible to drop revisions and avoid renumbering? Or must I keep the empty
