No, I didn't.

I guessed there was a good reason for doing it, and guessed that that was because dump+load used to be faster than import, and that the recent performance work had reversed the situation. Now I think about it, it might turn out to be slower than dump+load over RA-DAV; I didn't test that.

I didn't think of it being of use as a test in itself.

Perhaps we could let it be exercised for a day or so and then I will revert it if people think it is overall not a good thing.
