Dump/Load of a repository using the same format repository should give
the same results. If you are moving to a newer format repository
where there have been changes to reduce space then you might see a
reduction. For example, repositories created with SVN 1.6 only stores
files whose contents are identical once. This can potentially save
space depending on how many identical files you have. The repository
format is not always changed to reduce space, so you really would have
to look at what the new format brings for changes.
