What about locking? What if someone does checkin at the very moment when rsync
backup is running? Wouldn't that lead to an somewhat incorrect repository
backup -- stale locks, inconsistent state or whatever?

(Admittedly, I also run rsync to backup my FSFS repositories, and I am pretty
sure nobody check in late at night when rsync is but I am just curious if
there can be any problems in principle).
