Not likely. The first dumped revision of your second dumpfile will
look like an "add" of your entire tree -- that's not gonna work out
well, considering that at load-time, you'll be trying to perform adds
of paths that already exist in the repository. You'd basically need
to tweak that first revision (revision 501?) of your second dumpfile
so that it only contains the paths that were actually changed in that
revision.
