Stop here. Why are you doing this? Do you need to compress your dump
files? Or can you run the output through the 'split' command, and cat
the contents of the split files into the svnadmin load command to
avoid splitting your dumps?

Also, which Subversion version are you using? The more recent versions
do some very interesting things to clean up old formatting errors,
which you may find useful but can make the overall task more complex.
