Create SVN Repo with starting revision number XXXX?

Hello all;
I am trying to migrate existing data from VSS into SVN (or leave
existing releases in VSS and from now on use SVN) and I was wondering if
there is any way to set the starting revision number to something
besides 0. My reasoning for this is that I would like to use the
revision number as the build number of a project, however if I start at
0, the build numbers will be less than existing released software. Does
anyone see any draw backs to using the revision number in this way?
I've successfully accomplished this in a test environment by creating an
empty repository, dumping it to file, manually changing the
Revision-number line to say 1234, then loading the modified dump file
back into the repository, but this seems like an ugly hack. Any
comments/ideas would be appreciated.
