      Description

      [Forked from issue #4101]
      
      When used on a URL which not the repository root URL, but a subdirectory
      thereof, 'svnrdump dump' generates a dump stream whose records carry paths
      relative to the repository root directory.  I can kinda, maybe, sorta see how
      this could be useful (as an optimization over 'svnrdump dump REPOS-ROOT-URL |
      svndumpfilter include SOME/SUBDIR' or something), but I definitely can't
      understand how that approach would be the one a user would reasonably assume was
      in place.
      
      It would be nice, then, if svnrdump could be told to optionally generate dump
      streams in which the paths are relative to the source URL, regardless of whether
      that URL represents a repository root directory or some subdirectory thereof.
