Best practices: when to run "svnadmin verify"

I'm soliciting recommendations for best practices from svn admins.
I'm primarily thinking of repository robustness issues.

Right now, I'm backing up the subversion repository (and a "svnadmin
hotcopy") nightly. I'm wondering if I should be running "svnadmin
verify" nightly as well? If so, how can I detect a failure case?
I've read comments to the effect that verify will simply hang on a
"wedged" repository, which would render it less useful (unless perhaps
in conjunction with a watchdog).

Or perhaps there are other common means of checking the integrity of
the repository?
