svnsync is slower than dump/load.  I think the issue is that you can keep
the old repository online during the process and switch when you are ready.

BTW, why copy a file you are not supposed to when you could just use the
svnadmin setuuid command to make the Repository UUID match between the two
repositories?  No need to involve yourself in the internals of the
repository when there is a public interface to do it for you.
