Yes. :-)

Once again: The repository stores svndiff, and we send svndiff over the
wire. What algorithm we use to generate the svndiff doesn't matter, nor
does it have to be the same algorithm for the whole repository. The code
that uses the svndiff doesn't in any way depend on the code that
generates it.
