I don't think so.

It is possible to do this:

/mnt
....path
........to
..........Whatever
..................dirvish
..................foo-20150424
..................foo-20150425
..................bar-20150424
..................bar-20150425
..................baz-20150424
..................baz-20150425
 
This is done using branches: e.g. first create a foo-YYYYMMDD image,
then branch that to bar and baz. This can be useful if foo, bar and baz
are largely similar: common files will be hardlinked amongst the
branches (initially).
