Backup of a FSFS repository

Hello
 
I read the notes about backing up a FSFS repository in
 
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/notes/fsfs
 
I'm not quite sure however how I have to interpret the last paragraph:
So, if you are using standard backup tools to make backups of a FSFS
repository, configure the software to copy the "current" file before
the numbered revision files, if possible, and configure it not to copy
the "transactions" directory. If you can't do those things, use
"svnadmin hotcopy", or be prepared to cope with the very occasional
need for manual repair of the repository upon restoring it from
backup.

What is meant with manual repairing a repository? As written in the
paragraph
above, this seams to be errors which svnadmin recover does not (yet)
fix.
But will svnadmin verify give such a detailled error message that the
administrator knows what to do? Or is there a description what to do if
such a backup is damaged? Or is there already development under the way
to
improve svnadmin recover as proposed in the notes about FSFS?

Many thanks,
Thomas
