Okay, thanks, I understand.

Well, yes, usually I store a current working copy as well as a dump of
the repository as backup. In case the repository should be damaged I
still have the working copy an can continue working with it. The
pristine copies aren't useful in a backup, are they?

Can I use "svn export" to produce a copy without the pristine stuff?
Perhaps this can be useful for a backup.
