Of course it will work. The merge command compares 2 URLs -- *any* two
URLs -- and then applies the the diff to a working copy. Run 'svn help
merge' and notice the different syntaxes:

    svn merge URL1@X URL2@Y working-copy
    svn merge -r X:Y URL working-copy

The latter case is used when the URLs are identical. It's a shorthand
for the more formal first syntax.
