You can use svnsync to do the copy, then change the uuid to match the old one as
long as the final transaction matches - that is you do not do any commits during
or after the last sync run. It is much slower than rsync'ing the underlying
files (and doesn't take hooks), but might be worth doing if the original repo
started with an old version of subversion.
