I can also vouch for the fact that svnadmin verify does indeed work on
fsfs and verifies md5sum, in case someone wants to claim "it might be
broken too".

It caught the xdelta off by one error when i svnadmin verified the gcc
repo because the stored checksum from the fulltext didn't match the
checksum after applying the svn delta.
