Directly import sql files from a snapshot into a database?

Hey all,

I'm getting the dreaded "Manifest ITEM does not contain 'timestamp' item" error again, when trying to import a Snapshot.

This was a site I archived (as a Snapshot) at the beginning of the month, which I now need to get back into for some page content and CSS. The Snapshot unzips fine on my Mac, and I can see plenty of .sql files in there. Can I easily bring these directly into my database through phpMyAdmin?

I don't need to restore the whole site; I just need access to a few things. That said—and lots of love to the hard-working developers pouring your hearts and brains into it—that this is still happening is really frustrating, and makes it really hard to trust Snapshot to do what it's supposed to.
