svn move

I'm maintining a vendor tree according to the suggestions in "Version
Control with Subversion".

I put the vendor tree in our "trunk". I want to move it elsewhere
because it's becoming huge and unwieldly for people to download
everytime they branch from the trunk. But, I'm afraid that if I move the
vendor tree I may lose the ability to merge vendor version differences
back into the project's version.

Does an "svn merge" utilize the knowledge that a directory tree was
originally a copy, or is it really a simple diff and it could be
executed against any two trees? If the former, if I move a tree will
this history be preserved?

For example, here's what I have now.

respos/trunk* ,1.2.3
             \ /

And I want to end up with the following

respos* ,1.2.3
       \ /

without losing the ability--after upgrading to 1.2.4--to do:

svn merge repos/vendor/zlib/1.2.3 respos/vendor/zlib/1.x \
