The Eclipse feature I am describing does the exact same thing, it just
doesn't use symlinks. I can create a WC with a bunch of projects checked
out into it. In Eclipse when I import them it is essentially just
"registering" them to my workspace. Nothing moves. With Eclipse 3.1 and
Subclipse 0.9.29 when you do this it will even automatically "share the
project" with Subclipse. Also, if you add a new project and you place it
in this master WC location, it will even auto-add it to Subversion for

Subclipse itself doesn't really do anything with your files and folders.
We just make Subversion API calls. Subclipse should not be in the
business of figuring this stuff out. Bring it up on the Subversion
mailing list and convince them to make the API follow the symlink.
