Unless of course one of the lesser known features is used:
Cross-repository copies and merges actually work (to not use the term "supported"). Copies/moves
will become additions, inter-revision history is compessed and there is no merge tracking.
See the three-agrument (copy or) merge syntax "svn merge A@N A@M .", where A and "." refer
to different repositories.

Not that it's recommended in the user's case, but it should be mentioned.
