Use of "hotcopy" might require access to the BDB tools, but why can't we use a
straightforward directory tree copy? We know that nothing else is committing
to this (greek tree) repository, don't we? The only possible simultaneous
operation on it might be another set of tests running in parallel in the same
directory tree, which could be doing "svnadmin dump" on it, but does that
modify its files such that we can't do a directory tree copy?
