I don't really understand. We still use import, that's how we create
the dumpfile that gets loaded. Is using import/dump/load really that
much of an improvement over just using import?

Another idea: the dumpfile is less than 4K. How about versioning it,
droping the import/dump and simply loading the versioned dumpfile?
(This would have the effect that all the commit tests would use the
same Last-Changed-Date for the loaded revisions, I don't know if that
