hot-backup.py actually calls svnadmin hotcopy so the results should be
equivalent.

Both work for fsfs and bdb.

The main advantages of hot-backup.py are that it create a backup of the
repository into a subdirectory of given directory, named after the
youngest revision. It automatically handles naming, copies, and will
even do a specified maximum number of backups. Newer versions (trunk
only?) will optionally compress the backups.
