The 'source' parameter to normalize_merge_sources is fully expected to be
either a working copy path or a URL. (That there is a second parameter
'source_url' whose may be identical to 'source's could be misleading to
you.) At any rate, the normalize_merge_sources code should be smarter in
the way it handles 'source', to be sure.
