In my experience, svnadmin dump takes about half the time as svnadmin
verify.
I always thought that a verify was essentially a "dump followed by a load"
done in memory.

If a dump will actually find more problems, I'll gladly change, since
svnadmin verify has become extremely slow on larger repos in the 1.6
releases...
