 You're right, Daniel. *item* yes.

To clarify what I meant - say you have Repo-A/Path-B and Repo-X/Path-Y. You
could cd into your working copy of Path-B and do svn checkout Repo-X/Path-Y
Y and end up with B/Y in your working copy such that changes under Y commit
to Repo-X and changes under B not under Y commit to Repo-A. I have a hunch
this (not throwing an error) is by design, because it is *almost* identical
to how svn:externals work. I just tested this and Y shows up as ? when
doing svn status under B.
