Yes. Some tools (e.g. TortoiseSVN) may have trouble due to the renames,
but I think that's a bug in them, not in svn.

The example I'm thinking of: tsvn won't do "blame" (i.e. show the
originating revision number for each line) if you select a file and ask
it to limit its search entirely to a time before the file had its
current name. This is a tsvn bug, not an svn bug, because the svn
client has no problem in this situation.
