Yes.  It won't send the whole branch, and it won't send the branch
certs, but it will send the actual revisions.  The rule is that if you
give someone access to revision R, then you're also giving them access
to all of R's ancestors.

This seems like it might not be quite optimal, and people have
complained, but then I don't know of any VCS that given a branch A ->
B -> C let's you grant permission on A and C but not B... in any case,
we don't know how to do better, so the desirability of doing better is
a little moot :-).
