Is there a way to combine two InterpolatingFunctions which share a 
common boundary, and are C0 continuous at the common boundary (the 
values are continuous but the derivatives are NOT continuous at the 
common boundary)?

For example, I'm trying to combine the following:

a1=NDSolve[large differential equation system, {t,0,10}]

{{e2f -> InterpolatingFunction[{{0., 10.}}, <>], E2F -> \
InterpolatingFunction[{{0., 10.}}, <>], etc...}}

a2=NDSolve[large differential equation system, {t,10,20}]
{{e2f -> InterpolatingFunction[{{10., 20.}}, <>], E2F -> \
InterpolatingFunction[{{10., 20.}}, <>], etc...}}

and the combine a1 and a2 so that I get the following:
{{e2f -> InterpolatingFunction[{{0., 20.}}, <>], E2F -> \
InterpolatingFunction[{{0., 20.}}, <>], etc...}}

I've read that the InterpolatingFunction internals may be version 
specific, and I can't quite infer what they all mean.  I'm using 
Mathematica version 5.0

Thank you!
