Nope. You could restore the repo that way. All you have to do is make
sure the second dump can refer to nodes in the first dump. You do that
by using full paths of nodes in the previous revision for the
references. And I thought we agreed to keep only fulltexts in the dump,
no diffy stuff.

(Of course, "dump -r :1000 + dump -r 1002:" would not work in general;
but my example would.)
