Thank you, but I should prefer a traditional backup
approach.  You and other posters say that dumps are poor
choice, so I shall backup incremental hot copies.  But the
question remains that I have asked already in another reply:
are hot-copies a reliable means of long-term storage.
Cannot they become obsolete when a new version of SVN comes
out?  Are they portable across operating systems and
filesystems? (I fear not)
