NEWS.Debian says
  * In order to use certain features of 1.5.0, you will need to upgrade
    your repositories. Unlike with working copies, this is not done
    automatically; use the 'svnadmin upgrade' command.

However, for 1.4 it has an entry
  1.4.0 also brings an incompatible enhancement (known as 'svndiff1') to
  the repository storage format, reducing disk usage by something like
  30%. However, this ONLY affects new repositories, created with
  1.4. Existing repositories will continue to use the old format. If
  want to take advantage of svndiff1, dump and reload your repositories.

So I think we were warned :)

It sounds as you might be able to get away with svnadmin upgrade, since
you say your in v2.

Can anyone comment on whether that will work for from v1? Or will dump
and reload be enough? Do I need to do both (first dump/reload, then
svnadmin upgrade)?

It also sounds as if I can do an old-style merge to get the update I'm
looking for.
