svnadmin hotcopy feature request

From: Andy Peters <devel_at_latke.net>

I should probably post this on the dev list, but anyways:

I have a little shell script that hotcopies my repo to a temp directory,
tar-gzs it and then scps it across the network to my backup system. tar
has the verbose switch, scp has its progress indicator, but hotcopy has
nothing that says, "hey, I'm alive." This can be disconcerting for
large repositories ... "when's it gonna be done?"

So my feature request: add a --verbose switch, or a --progress switch,
to svnadmin hotcopy that gives the user an idea of how long the process
will take. You know how many revisions are in the repository, so simply
counting down rev numbers as they're copied is probably the simplest way
of doing this.

I realize that this isn't anywhere near the high priority of other
things, but hey, "it would be nice."
