You can use that usage pattern, you just cannot use an external editor.

With that scenario, you have to use the Eclipse merge, save the results
locally. And then do the "Mark as Merged" option.

I personally use Synchrnonize to get an idea of what is going to happen. I
then just let Subversion do it all by doing Team -> Update from the root.
If it cannot auto-merge any of the changes, I can then use Edit Conflicts
to resolve the parts it could not handle automatically.
