Jonathan, Ben clarified to me what you meant, I think.

You're asking "If a regular backup program happens to copy the
repository dir to tape, will that data be in a consistent state? Can
it be used for a restore later?"

Jim's answer was "Yes", if I understood correctly. So there's nothing
to worry about.
