What does that mean? That sounds horribly messy.

A dump represents some subset of a repository. I can't imagine what a
mess it would be to somehow "concatenate" N revisions from one
repository onto the end of another.

My (simple) vision was that a dumpfile was a snapshot of a repository,
and it can be used to recreate the repository. Once we start talking
about mixing-and-matching pieces of repositories, we're off in another
world of problems. And I'm not sure that world is important right
now...
