According to document 'subversion/libsvn_fs_fs/structure' [1] and the 
SVN_FS_FS__MIN_* constants [2], f5 was never released (it existed in 
1.7-dev builds only) and the only change between f4 and f6 was packed 

Since this script doesn't deal with revprops, I'm pretty confident then 
that it should work with f6 just as well as it did with f5 or f4 (which 
is to say, not perfectly but good enough to get us out of a hole 

So I'll bump this MAX_FSFS_FORMAT constant.

Done in

Thanks for prompting me to look into it, James.
