So is it ok if I follow the following steps to remove say revision 3
and 4 from a project which has revisions 1,2,3,4,5 and 6?

1) dump revisions 1,2,3 in dumpfile_1
2) dump revisions 5,6 in dumpfile_2
3) create new repository
4) load from dumpfile_1
5) load from dumpfile_2

I already did that and it showed that those revsions (3,4) were
totally gone (as the log messages for those revisions were missing
too). Also I notice re-numbering of revisions during the load from
dumpfile_2 to make the sequence proper again.

All I want is a subversion guru to validate my approach.
