Yes, it is safe to run on live repository.  If the admin doesn't specify
a revision range it will default to 0:HEAD where HEAD is determined
before starting the dump.  If you change revision properties during the
dump and those changes occur after the revision involved has been dumped
then the dump will include the old, rather than new, values.
