Yes (and it is probably even less code to do so).

Alternatively, we could copy revisions explicitly in strict
order as opposed to blindly copying directory contents.
That way, we would detect a pack process removing
files under our very eyes and restart the copying at the
appropriate shard. Disabling pack during hotcopy would
still be a good idea but no longer necessary.

I guess such a change would be 1.10 material.
