Perhaps making dumpfiles available (maybe diffy Subversion 1.1 style 
dumps once they're released), or providing a libsvn_fs_fs version of the 
repository for rsyncing.

Although since the ASF is using one large repository some hybrid might 
be best, dumping and loading into smaller fsfs repositories for each 
project which are available for rsyncing?

Whatever way is chosen, I don't think making bdb style repositories 
available for rsync will do much good, too many platform/bdb version 
issues to make it bulletproof.
