I doubt it's recommended, but I have done it before and it does work :)

You can also copy only part of a working copy, but if you do that make
sure you copy an entire tree. ie. if you've got a WC with root "stuff"
that contains "stuff1", "stuff2", and "stuff3", then you can copy the
whole "stuff2" folder somewhere else and it stays a valid working copy,
but you cannot copy "stuff2" and "stuff3" only -- if you want both then
you must copy the whole of "stuff", not pieces of it.
