What about the --incremental option? Any problems using it in conjunction with pack?

My basic plan for the nightly housekeeping script is:

        svnadmin verify %repopath%
        svnadmin pack %repopath%
        svnadmin hotcopy %repopath% %backupdir% --incremental

I should end up with a properly packed hotcopy at the end, right?
