Please file an issue.

The Subversion API does not. JavaSVN added a special one that does, and
we do use it. The only way it would work with JavaHL would be if you
checked out a common parent folder using another client, and then imported
the projects into Subclipse. We would then have to detect this, which can
be hard given that the common parent is not part of the workspace. Anyway,
we do not bother to try to detect this scenario since you can only set it
up manually.

Our hope is to enhance the Subversion API to support this natively, even
if there is no common parent.
