Unfortunately, 'svnadmin deltify' is not useful these days (it's
basically a no-op), and won't make recoveries faster.

In the dev@ list, we're discussing steps we can take to make
Subversion's interactions with Berkeley DB more stable (I hasten to
point out that the problems appear to be with Subversion's usage of
BDB, not with BDB itself). We're getting a lot of help from the folks
at Sleepycat.com. See this thread
