This sounds good, mine was a quick hack... and like I said, the
repository I am using it in doesn't have that much commit traffic, so no
one notices the performance issue.

Does subversion already come with such backup script? Maybe we should
submit these scripts back, I think some others may find it helpful...
where would I submit it to?
