[ANNOUNCE] svnrdump: A new dumper/ loader in trunk

There's now a new tool located in subversion/svnrdump. We have
developed it over the last few weeks, and we feel that it is mature
enough to announce. Although it has not been tested extensively, we
would like to encourage you to try it out and give us feedback so we
can improve it.

So what is svnrdump? It is a tool to produce a dumpfile from a remote
repository without having to mirror the whole thing on the hard disk,
as well as load a dumpfile into a remote repository. Although it's
fundamentally different from the `svnadmin` tool on the inside, it can
be thought of as providing a remote `svnadmin dump | load`
functionality. It currently only works with dumpfile v3, and we intend
to keep it that way.

svnrdump is meant to be a lightweight high-performance tool that is
intended to be useful to both server admins and developers of other
versioning systems looking to import/ export revision history from
Subversion. The motivation for the project actually arises from my
recent GSoC project, git-remote-svn; the Git developers are writing in
support for seamless interoperability with Subversion.

Anyway, we hope you find the tool useful; do test it on your own
repositories and file issues/ feature requests.
