Well, I was actually thinking of the specific instance of KForge that is
KnowledgeForge -- apologies for being vague about this, I wasn't clear on the
distinction myself at the time. Anyway, I don't have filesystem access to the
KnowledgeForge server, and to load svn dumpfiles (using "svnadmin load") I'd
need this. So I'm stuck.

(I gather SourceForge has some special automated script for loading dumpfiles,
-- indeed it was reading the docs for that which made me wonder if
KnowledgeForge was capable of doing this -- and that suggests to me there may
be no other easy way of importing repositories with existing revision history.)
