I feel there is some confusion about loading versus merging.
Loading replaces the code in you image with the code of the version
you load. This is similar to checking out a specific CVS/SVN revision.
Merging tries to figure out what changed between the code in the image
and the code of a version and only load those changes. Although this
sounds like a good idea, figuring out takes much more time than just
loading everything. This is more like a CVS/SVN update.

to sum up:
Loading is the right thing unless you have a branch or local changes.
You neither need to load nor merge file library.
