If you load a dumpfile into a repository that is not empty, then the
revisions from the dumpfile will get added to the repository after
the revisions that are already there and revisions from your dump
will get renumbered as necessary.

Revisions 0 thru 2545 of repo1 will be loaded into repo2. If repo2
was empty, then repo2 will now have 2545 revisions.

> svnadmin dump -r 2000:HEAD --incremental repo1 | svnadmin load repo2

This will try to load revisions 2000 thru HEAD of repo1 into repo2
again. This will fail because the change made in revision 2000 in
repo1 already was made in repo2.

Then you should look at the tool svk.

You can't.
