You need to convert to FSFS if you want to use file:/// URLs, i.e. in
a serverless setup.

Another thought, you could set up a server (svnserve) to run on your
own machine and use svn:// URLs instead. That way you could continue
to use your existing BDB repository. The subversion server binary from
CollabNet is quite good at making the server installation as simple as
possible. Not sure if that is any easier.

You'll still need to checkout fresh working copies for TSVN 1.7 as the
working copy format is substantially different between 1.4 and 1.7 and
WC upgrade is not possible.
