Heck no. =) We found the race conditions in the dump loader because we do
the load while the repository is on-line.

Here's my thoughts: on one hand, I'd like this feature because we have our
post-commit hooks doing backups. On the other hand, doing the backups and
doing the mailer for the imported files makes little sense. For some
projects that'd be over 20,000 commits: that's absurd.

(FWIW, I have a script that goes through and does the incremental
one-revision backups after I do the load to work around the lack of hook

So, I'm not sure it'd make sense for the extreme use case of apache.org.
However, I can see smaller circumstances that make sense for this feature
and have often thought this might not be a bad idea to offer... -- justin
