It doesn't "rewuire" the snapshot. That is a feature that is
helpful in not missing changes and needs the '-L' flag. But, it
will dump just nicely without it and only be momentarily confused
on restore if files are missing that show up in the dump directory
and will not even know about files that are created after the
dump directory was created. If you can tolerate that, then it is
not a requirement.
