Loading a filtered dump with missing parent nodes in repos.

Not a big problem this, but anyhow an issue I guess several have experienced, and maybe some smart solution exists to this problem.

The problem is that a dump after some filtering may contain paths where the parent Nodes dont exist neither in the SVN repos nor as an Add in the dump. This makes the load stop, and the Node must then be created, before a new load can be done. The problem then is that a a lot of the dump already has been loaded, and a new load is not possible. Solution : delete the already loaded stuff, keep the node that you must create before the load, and reload. The problem with this is of course that a lot of revisions is bloating the repository, so what I have figured out is that it is best to load these dumps into a test repository first, to figure out what nodes must be created beforehand, and then later create these nodes in the production repos and do the load.

Any better way to solve this?
