I'm creating the new repositories with the old version for those
(hopefully rare) occasions when we need to switch back to the old server
version.

You can create old format repositories with the new tools via the
following flags to create:
--pre-1.4-compatible
--pre-1.5-compatible
--pre-1.6-compatible
and with 1.8 (when we got a clue that the above was getting silly):
--compatible-version

So you don't actually need to keep old versions of svnadmin around in
order to do that.
