I have been using a modified version locally of io.c that does
exactly that for a while now because I have a working copy whose
top-level directory is a symlink. Otherwise, svn fails on all
operations in that WC (wc is not a dir error).

In short, ++1 here. In some conversations in IRC, a number of people
disagreed with this change and didn't want to see it. Hence, I never
posted about it. -- justin
