AFAIK, locks do not get synched via svnsync. I cannot answer the
script question. I wonder of the locks folder (is that were they are
stored in fsfs?) could just be moved/replaced in the svnsynced version
when the process was concluded? The internal ID's change with 1.5, so
if locks use those, then probably not.

I'd say you'd probably just want to use svnadmin upgrade and build the
node-index-origins index. The size/performance penalty of doing it
this way is fairly small.
