I reviewed the thread and didn't see any committers saying, "No, we will
never have support for checking in symlinks." I saw people discussing
possible approaches to the Windows problem, and some committers saying
it wasn't a very high priority. Did I miss something?

I don't know what transpired on the #svn channel. But it's easy to
confuse "none of us people currently with commit bits are very sanguine
about doing it, for reasons foo and bar" with "it could never happen."
