If there is diskspace to have the copy on the same disk then one option
is to the leave the slave online. When the svnsync finishes on the copy
the slave will have up-to-date revprops. Then replace the slave
repository with the copy repository but keep the revprops:

    - hotcopy the slave repository
    - do the rewind/backdate/recover/svnsync operation on the copy
    - stop apache
    - move copy repository's db/revprops/ away
    - move slave repository's db/revprops/ into copy repository
    - move slave repository away
    - move copy repository to replace slave repository
    - start apache

The move operations are quick on the same disk, so the repository is
only offline for a short period.
