As I said, 'svnadmin dump' is not for backups. It has nothing to do
with the BSD 'dump' command that you would spool to a tape device.
It's for data migration, and is very slow.

'cp' is for backups. What is un-portable or insecure about 'cp'? Or
python? This is how BerkeleyDB was designed to be backed up.
