Upgrading repo preserving user locks?

What is the best process to move and upgrade a repository and preserve
user locks?

The repos are quite large (tens of GB each), and each repo has a few
hundred user locks
at any point in time. (Data is mostly binary, so locks are required.)

My attempts:

- dump/load loses lock info
- svnsync loses lock info
- svnadmin hotcopy preserves lock info but doesn't upgrade the format
- cp does pretty much the same as hotcopy.

It isn't really acceptable to break all the locks or have all the users
unlock their files.

Currently using svn 1.4.5 with fsfs on Linux, but most of the repos were
created in 1.3 or earlier.

Anyone written a script to pull out the locks and recreate them in the
copy?
(Is this even possible?)

Did I just miss something completely obvious?
