I have 210,000 files each in my rev and revprops directories. The svn
repository is around 4GB in size.

I am making a tar of the svn repository right now. I will push it up
on a server when it is finished. These things take hours for 4GB

I suspect using file system extended attributes would be a lot more
efficient than separate files in revprops.
