Yup, when someone has time to do it.  AFAIK, it will involve
dumping the repository and reloading it. Past experience suggests that
this will take several hours.  This involves scheduled downtime,
testing, dealing with the inevitable misshap ....

IMHO the process is straightforward and easy (except for the time it will take), and there is no problem reverting to the previous state:

- run svnadmin dump on the old repository
- move the old repository aside
- create a new repository with fsfs backend
- run svnadmin load to load the data into the new repository

At no point would any data be in danger. The problem I see on the current box is hard drive space. I'm not sure the remaining space is enough to hold a complete dump *and* the new repository along with the old one.
