This one is what I want to do. Change have been made to a piece of
in-production code, and my co-worker wants to migrate the changes into
the trunk of the development version.

I do this regularly when I'm making my fixes to various trees of code,
using the

    svn merge -r start:end REPOS-PATH WC

incantation of the merge command. Works fine for me - this is why I'm
confused about why it won't work for this current situation, which to me
seems like the same thing.
