No. You are copying at the file system level and then committing them to
the repository you have two copies with separate ancestry. Then again,
the docs aren't really clear. They talk about cheap coppies when copying
a URL path to a URL path. They don't really talk about copying within
the WC and then commiting being cheap. Maybe it is smart enough to do
this. If you have a check out that includes the parent of where you are
coping from to and commit is this a cheap copy?

Yes... That will for sure work.
