Dump/load is probably a bit simpler since you can shut down your
svnserver/http remote access to make sure nothing changes and loading to
an empty repository sets the uuid from the dump to maintain
compatibility with checked-out workspaces. But, svnsync should work
too, or there wouldn't be much point to having it. You need to fix up
the hooks to match the old version either way.
