I was under the impression that a hot-backup is only necessary for
BDB repositories -- that FSFS repositories can simply be copied using
a normal operating system copy. In other words, the existence of hot-
copy for BDB is not a benefit of BDB; the necessity of using hot-copy
for BDB is a drawback of BDB. At least that's what the list has led
me to believe.
