Certainly, but that's what the previous poster had given up in favor
of an svnsynced off-site copy of the repository. Obviously this
eliminates the copy going down south with the same HDD as the
master, but not my wondering about the possibility of some other
errors or corruption within the repository (and I don't mean broken
code checked in!) being faithfully synced to the slave.
