Yep it worked great!

I also tested this out and it worked like a charm. Still for any
other case you would have to type out the root url to the repository
which could add a lot of typing. You can't even use copy-n-paste from
the 'mergeinfo' output.

Was there already some discussion about allowing these kind of
relative URLs? If Subversion did support them I guess there would
have to be a way to disambiguate them from working copy paths. And if
it *were* implemented, would it go into the svn client code or the
working copy library?
