Consider this to be a form of Review-Then-Commit (RTC).  Those who
wish to review the dump file are welcome to do so.  Those who wish to
object to the approach are welcome to do so take the lead on an
alternative approach.  But if I don't receive objections, then I'll
assume lazy consensus and go forward with this.

Since we are talking about 76 thousand files, it did not seem like the
best place to apply CTR.

I'm not certain whether I have permissions to load the dump file
directly, without going through Apache Infra.  I'd like to avoid doing
this as a giant commit of 76K files because of difficulty of dealing
with partial failures.  I also want to avoid sending a 1.8 GB commit
note to your inbox!

I'm assuming that on the Infra side, they would first lock SVN from
writes, do a dump of the existing AOOo repository, as a backup, then
load my dump file.  That way, if anything goes wrong, they can restart
from a known state.
