Massive overkill unless the repository format or database version has changed.
As long as the OP is running 1.0.0 or better under Win2k, the only thing
required is to stop the service and run the new installer. If he wants to be
extra paranoid, he could do the svndump step and save those files off until
after testing.

The dump/reload cycle is not required unless specifically mentioned in the
README for a given release.
