Not sure if there's a way to speed this up, but to try to avert your
lynching, I think you could safely allow the engineers to continue
working on the old 1.3.2 repository while the dump proceeds. You can
then load this into a new 1.4 repository at your leisure. Once it's
done, then you can kick everybody out of the old repository, do an
incremental dump of any revisions created since your initial dump,
load that into the new repository, point the server at the new
repository, and get back to work.
