Dump/load is supposed to 'always' work and gives the system a change to
optimize storage. Upgrade-in-place should work too, but may not
optimize to new formats, and copying the binary repo files might only
work across similar CPU types. Yet another alternative would be to use
svnsync to pull the content from the old to the new server, then adjust
the hooks to become an active repository.
