RE: Can I copy a repo with a simple 'cp -r'?

I admit to being cautious. I also have about 3 years of code history that I have in my repositories as a general rule.

And for the record, I use both Linux and Windows, and it just is easier to deal with "dump and load" rather than "move, hope to heck all permissions are the same and that bdb doesn't hose my repository."

I understand that's your operating model; my point is that this seems
more conservative than necessary, if you can verify that the same
software is running on both ends. At least with Linux that seems to
work; it may be that with Windows the more cautious approach is best.
