In fact, rewriting svn:externals with such a script is the only
reason I can think of why you might want to dump and re-load. If you
don't use any svn:externals that point to this repository, then all
you need to do is move the repository on disk to the place where
Apache is expecting them, and change the ownership of the files to
the user under which Apache runs. If you have any existing working
copies of that repository that you would like to re-point to the http
URL, just use "svn switch --relocate svn://old/url/to/repo http://new/
url/to/repo"
