a "proper" backup tool

I've been reading a discussion about a "proper" backup tool and now I'm
wondering if I misunderstand something in the nature of svn... Can
someone explain what is wrong with this backup policy... Say, I want to
keep a copy of repository. To make it harder -- remote one. Isn't it
achieved with something like

RREV="`ssh user@host "svnlook youngest /repo"`"
REV="`svnlook youngest /repo`"
if [ "${REV}" != "${RREV}" ] ; then
 REV="`expr ${REV} + 1`"
 ssh user@host "svnadmin dump /repo -r ${REV}:HEAD --incremental" \
 | svnadmin load /repo
fi

Well, of course, one can add conditional creation of the local repo,
more error checking would make sense, maybe, setting umasks if needed,
and even compression filter, but those are unnecessary details.

Wouldn't this pattern get you a proper copy of the repository?

Regards,
 Michael
