Repository format upgrade - impact on users?

Hi all,

I have a question regarding the necessary procedure for upgrading a 1.2.x
repository to 1.4.x. I understand that you might get significant space
savings by upgrading the format. My general question is whether or not
doing this upgrade will impact users' working copies assuming that I don't
change the repository location. Here was the general sequence of steps I
was considering:

1. Disable checkins.
2. Do a full repository dump.
3. Reload dump into fresh repo.
4. Move the fresh repo in place of the old one. (rename the old one to
something else.)
5. Enable checkins

The main question was whether you have to create fresh working copies in
this situation. If not that would be wonderful. If we do then I have to go
through the hassle of requiring everyone to checkin their stuff.

Any comments? Is the series of steps above correct? This really isn't much
different from a backup/restore process.

-Steve
