Yes, it works fine, the repo is just a subversion repo.  svk does all  
its magic in a few svn properties (keeping track of merge history  

The advantage that SVK has in cases like this is that I can create a  
branch of python24-maint without using the svn.python.org repo  
directly and then have the capability to merge changes one way or  
another, while still using svn repositories.
