Ok lemme explain...
- I branched from the current trunk, say branchA
- I branched (second one) from the current trunk, say branchB
- I created tags trunk-to-branchB from trunk,
  and branchB-to-trunk from branchB
- I delete current trunk
- I cp branchA (not branchB) to trunk

Can I still do svn merge //.../trunk-to-branchB //.../trunk?
If understand SVN correctly, the answer is YES, but I wanted
to make sure.
