svn_load_dirs.pl itself makes a working copy of the previous version
of the package in your repository, changes it to look like the new
version you're upgrading to, compares everything to make sure it's
done it right, and commits it.

The important thing to remember is that the place in the repository
where you load new versions with svn_load_dirs.pl -- usually /vendor
-- should not have any local modifications of yours. If you want to
make local modifications, copy the thing in /vendor to somewhere else
(I used /tools in my repo) and modify it there. Then you can use svn
merge to upgrade your copy to the latest version after loading a new
version into /vendor with svn_load_dirs.pl.
