Or just adjust the UUID of the copied repositories (which you can do
with svnadmin load [1]). The difficult bit would probably be generating
unique, valid, UUIDs, unless we're happy to use invalid ones (as Max
pointed out to me, you can actually have 'I like ponies' as a UUID if
you really want to, since we don't do anything other than string
comparison with it).

[1] It might be nice to have some easier way to manipulate repository
    UUIDs as well: svnsync is another instance that currently relies on
    that load trick to allow you to set up a mirror you can switch away
    from.

    Perhaps we should introduce 'svnadmin setuuid <REPOS> [UUID]'?
    (If UUID wasn't specified, it would just pick a new random one.)

Malcolm
