Re: loading a dump file with revision gaps, possible?

Aha! I obviously misinterpreted this sentence in the book:

  "As Subversion dumps each new revision, it outputs only enough
  information to allow a future loader to re-create that revision
  based on the previous one."

I automatically assumed that "only enough information" implied using
diffs. Had I bothered reading the next sentence as well, everything
would have been clear:

  "In other words, for any given revision in the dump file, only the
  items that were changed in that revision will appear in the dump."

How bad would it be, then, to loose a revision in the middle of a dump
file made with --deltas?
