If all else fails, you could write a script that commits 999 revisions
of a small file? There would still be overhead, but not that much I
guess.

Something like this:

for i in `seq 999`; do echo $i > tempfile.txt; svn commit -m "Fake
commit $i" tempfile.txt; done

Just an idea, you'll have to see for yourself if that works
