Subversion 1.2 introduces a better FSFS format. Although it's not
required to reload FSFS repositories when moving to 1.2, it provides
better performance, so it's a good idea. Therefore, it would be
better to:

1. Disable access to all repositories.
2. Using your 1.1.x binaries, dump all your existing repositories
into dump files.
3. Move the repository directories to a backup area.
4. Upgrade to 1.2.3.
5. Using the new 1.2.3 binaries, create new empty FSFS repositories
where the old ones were, and load the dump files into them.
6. Reenable access.
