If you want to change things, it would be nice to be able to give
svndumpfilter a bunch of paths where projects start and have it split
them into separate files in one pass  - and to do something useful
when a project was originally imported into the wrong location and
them moved to the correct path.

And perhaps mention the difficulty of this process in the beginning of
the documentation/overview to discourage putting more than one project
in a repo in the first place.
