Re: Feature request: a real backup/restore system for svn.

I'd be concerned that restore time will take too long if the backup is a
collection of dumps. Ideally, you should be able to move the backup
into place and be up and running again in minutes, even if you have a
big repository.

I think the hotcopy race is probably more of a theoretical issue than a
practical one, unless you have a very high rate of commits (and in that
case, maybe you have the resources to learn about turning off logfile
removal and only remove logfiles at such a time as you're not doing a
hotcopy). Especially since in 1.1, read-only operations don't frob the
database so much.
