You'd change the first field of db/current to refer to the most recent
complete rev. (You could then remove any partially-written rev files
after that, or just let them be overwritten as commits are made.)

"svnadmin recover" may learn how to do this on FSFS some day, although
mechanistically determining the most recent complete rev is a little
tricky as things stand.
