If you're loading a repository, in the sense of a "restore", then the
numbers will be retained.

If you're loading into a repos that already has data, then the numbers
definitely can't match (since your dump started at 1, and your load will be
starting at N).

If you're loading a subset into a repos, then they can't match (you're
loading N as rev 1).

Agreed. On a simple dump/load operation, the numbers will be retained. If
you're using subsets of pre-existing repos, then I think you'd just need to
live with the difference. But note: on the human side of the keyboard, they
might be entirely fine with this; I don't think we necessarily should
prevent the occurrence.
