For completeness' sake, BDB *can* be moved, provided the platform
byte-order is the same, and you run 'svnadmin recover' after. I've done
this several times. http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2004-07/0417.shtml

But that's just academic. IMO this is a perfect time for Kevin to dump
from BDB into FSFS and never have to think about the backend again.
