Subversion Histroy question

Hi all,
We have been using SVN for years. Our repositories raised in size over the years. To get our repositories easier to maintain/backup we are looking for a possibility to get rid of unused old revisions.

E.g. Out of a repository of 10'000 revisions the interest is in the last 1'000 revisions. Is there a way to remove revision 1-8'999 without losing the correct revision number 10'0000.

My idea was to dump revision 9'000 to 10'000 and load it into a new repository. The load unfortunately starts with revision 1 and ends with the head revision 1'000 what ended up in a mess since several users checked out the revision 10'000 before the dump and are not anymore able to commit against the new repository's head revision 1'000.

Is there a suitable solution for this issue? Is there a bug request concerning this problem?
