Other than breaking date-based revisions as Larry said, no, there is
no problem. Specifically, I'm pretty sure there is no chance that the
revisions you're loading will get messed up by revisions others are
committing in other parts of the repository. I don't know whether
others' revisions will be allowed to sneak into the middle of the
ones you're loading or whether it will block them until you're done
loading. I would guess it wouldn't matter either way.

In case there is a problem and you want to roll back to a revision
prior to the load, you may want to schedule this for a time when you
can disable write access to the repository to everyone else.
