Reconstructing a repository from revs/* files

It is possible to reconstruct a repository from the files in db/revs/
alone? As far as I can tell all the files for all the revisions are
present, but filesystem corruption destroyed all the other pieces of the
database (fsfs format).

I have already the obvious (to me) method of creating a new empty fsfs
repository, deleting the current file, and copying the revs/* files to
the repository that I wish to reconstruct into the appropriate place,
then running svnadmin recover. The svnadmin recover command returns
success but the repository afterwards does not work:

$ svn co file:///home/hajhouse/recover/REPO/
svn: No such revision 891

This is subversion 1.5. Any ideas would be appreciated!
