What part is not realiable? You could retrieve $LAST from your remote
location to prevent storing it locally, with the synchronization
problems that yields:

   LAST=`ssh otherserver svnlook $OTHER_REPO youngest`

The only thing you need to ensure is that at most one "synchronization"
is active at a time, that should be doable using many methods.

This sounds like a dangerous way of splitting the action into two cases,
one of which is a special-case.

Why not just think of it as a replication upto a certain
revision-number? Whether something "failed" in the past isn't really
relevant to the actual synchronization, but only to the administrator.
