And it's pleasantly easy to migrate too! I didn't script my migration, but
I easily could have:

cd $svnparentpath
for repos in */
    mv $repos ${repos}_bdb
    svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs $repos
    svnadmin dump ${repos}_bdb | svnadmin load $repos

Keep in mind all my repositories had < 50 revisions at this time; I suspect
that with larger repositories there might be concerns using dump and load on
the same pipeline. Still, that's one extra line of code and two redirects.
(And a greater investment in wait time, admittedly.)

Kudos to the team for something this well-designed. A backend migration
doesn't have to be this easy, but I sure am grateful that it was! It still
boggles my mind a little bit that ViewCVS didn't hiccup, handling both
repository types transparently. Behold the power of a good abstraction
layer: It's a Good Thing(TM). :)
