svn repos locking tool

Is there any way to run arbitrary things while keeping a
repository in a consistent state?

For example, to implement a tar+gz or rsync backup instead of
'svnadmin hotcopy'.

Maybe a "run with locking" command like:

  svnadmin syncexec /repos/myrepos -- tar xzf /backup/myrepos.tar.gz /repos/myrepos

  lock_handle=`svnadmin lock /repos/myrepos` || exit 1
  svnadmin unlock $lock_handle

The possibility of using rsync to incrementally backup an FSFS
repository is nice but it seems right now we'd have to take the
server offline to do it (and this can be painful unless it's only
accessed through svn://)

Also, /svn/trunk/notes/fsfs talks about plans for 'svnadmin
recover' being able to deal with naive copies - will this be in
subversion 1.2?
