I don't even think this is possible. When the needs recoverey while
apache is running, I usually have to logon with root privileges and do a
killall -KILL httpd, killall svnserve, then run ipcs and delete all the
leftover locks, then I will be able to run db_recover or svnadmin
recover. Then restart httpd & svnserve -d. We'd need one hell of a
