svndumptool has ben around for years and is very stable since version 0.3.

Version 0.4 removes a check for node-kind which makes it a bit less
reliable. But "svndumptool check" and "svnadmin load" both do this check
again so that's no problem.

I recommend running svndumptool check and diff (where applicable) before
loading a modified dumpfile ("svndumptool check -A" is much faster than
"svnadmin load" so almost no time is wasted using it).

eolfix transform-revprop and transform-prop are the only commands which
modifies the data in a dump file. Use them with care and check the
results.

Merge can rename path's and introduce inconsistencies (duplicate nodes or
missing parent directory) but those are found using check (and svnadmin
load).
