Is this really the only thing to worry about?

Since the dump file contains diffs, I would have thought that having a
hole in the revision history would mean potensial for trouble with all
later changes to the paths that were changed in r721/r722?

Does it make a difference to the robustness of things if the dump was
made with --deltas or not?

Would it be possible to create an empty revision to avoid this? There
are several good reasons why one would *not* want the revision numbers
to shift around, e.g. if they are used in log messages for keeping
track of merges.
