Write-through proxy: easy slave-server de-synchronization

Hello all,

I've examined write-through proxy feature and
found that the state of Slave server could be easily
de-synchronized (against the repo state of Master-server).

I've figure out that if someone commits to Master while
there is no connection between Slave and Master (ISP failure?),
then sample post-commit hook fails to synchronize repo state.
And after such event, all subsequent attempts will fail because
incremental "dump load" will fail also (or Slave will just loose one

Do I have right understanding of described things?
If so, users must be warned about usage of sample post-commit hook
in real life environments with such distributed configuration.

Of cause, I'm going to develop home-brew shell script,
which lacks certain drawback, but I'd prefer to have
Master->Slave synchronization built-in in SVN binary or
implemented as standalone synchronization server ;-)
