Gammons 'Waking serial from sleep' - Can it be done for softwareSerial?

I have designed a board which already uses the hardware serial (or rather i should have used for serial) and i've set up a softwareSerial connection on A1-15/A2-16 (because these pins were free and easy to route to) Finding Nick Gammons wake serial sketch (where a pin change interrupt is set up on RX) was wondering if the same could be accomplished on softwareSerial dedicated pins?

Those pins can generate an interrupt on change, just like any other. It really doesn't have anything to do with SoftwareSerial.

A1 = PCINT9 A2 = PCINT10

which means you will have to set the appropriate bits in PCIE1

What i should have said is:

I have a dedicated softwareSerial set up on A1/A2. Can I use these pins to wake the processor from sleep

PCMSK1 |= bit (PCINT9); PCIFR |= bit (PCIF1); PCICR |= bit (PCIE1);

am i barking up the right tree?
