Copy it from some other repository.

Old repositories don't have a fsfs.conf file. I think we should either make
'hotcopy' tolerate the absence of that file, or make 'svnadmin upgrade' create
it; otherwise,

        svnadmin1.5 create foo
        svnadmin1.7 hotcopy foo bar

will fail with the error Александр quotes.

Anybody has a preference regarding which solution to take?
