Solved this issue: apparently libsvn0 was still installed. For some
reason, subversion depends on libsvn0, but the older subversion can use
the newer lib. When it does, it effectively IS 1.2.3. Once I
uninstalled the lib, I was able to install the older lib and I was able
to get an older version of svn on my system.

 From there, it was straightforward to move the repository, create a new
one with FSFS, dump from old and load from new. I think I'm good to go,
except I don't quite get when I would copy hooks over. The FAQ says I
should not copy them blindly, but it doesn't tell me why I would not
copy one versus another.
