Not sure this is going to work. The log dialog fetches the last 100
revisions from the repository, and then gets more on request. There is
no guarantee that the revisions from the same period in the first
repository you loaded will be in those first 100 revisions.

Unfortunately you do need VS.NET2005 to build, it can't be done with free tools.

If you are looking to contribute you might also want to think about
fixing this problem at source, ie a way to import multiple dumpfiles,
interleaving revisions into correct date order. That would be part of
the core subversion project.
