Subversion 1.8 will ship with incremental hotcopy support (for FSFS
only) which should address this problem.
There's no release date for Subversion 1.8 yet. I'm just noting this
in case this makes a difference to your long-term planning.

Until then, svnsync or svnadmin dump/load are the only officially
supported incremental backup solutions. But, as Daniel explained,
'rsync' followed by 'svnadmin recover' produces valid copies of
FSFS repositories, too.
