It depends on how you define "completely and utterly robust" :-)

Having all the clients receive SVN_ERR_REPOS_RECOVER and print
"repository /foo/bar/repo requires recovery" and relying on the
repository administrator running db_recover would do for me.

At present, ra_local never loses data once it has been committed, it
is "completely and utterly robust". All I want is to minimise the
circumstances that cause SVN_ERR_REPOS_RECOVER. But when it does
occur I am happy with manual intervention.
