A comment at the top of svndump/merge.py says "handle copyfrom-rev !!!",
so I'm afraid it does not ;-)

I hoped that this repository merging would be a problem that many people
before me have experienced and that there would be an easy solution for
that... and still hope I don't have to touch the dumps to modify
revision numbers myself... but if so, is my interpretation (see below)
of what "svnadmin load" does correct, w.r.t. references to previous

I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall
defend to the death your right to say it.
