Justin pointed out that the "catastrophic" switch for db_recover
actually "removes the shared memory and platform-specific environment.
This always has to be done when moving a BDB repository to another
system. So, I don't think that necessitates being done by default as
that's not a real typical use case. Though, perhaps a long opt to
recover though to expose this might suffice for your need. *shrug*"

+1 on that suggestion (adding a long opt to svnadmin recover to enable
catastrophic recovery). If we also add in some documentation which
explains that this switch is required whenever you move a DB to a
different system, that'd be a nice bonus.
