svnadmin dump only keeps the data, not the repository format or the
Subversion libraries themselves.

svnadmin dump/load will migrate his data to the new server, but it
will be running Subversion 1.6.5 and have all the latest features,
like FSFS directory sharding & packing, merge tracking, etc. Unless he
has a very good reason to stick with 1.4.2 (like a bug in 1.6.5 that
does not exist in 1.4.2), the upgrade is a good thing.
