For speed and simplicity of code, 'svnadmin dump' does no
authorization checks -- it just assumes you're allowed to read
everything in the repository (since you clearly have read access to
the physical filesystem, this is a safe assumption). A dump over one
of the network protocols could not make this assumption, however.

For the above reasons, it could never be anonymous.
