Actually, since symbolic links are not stored in the repository
as symbolic links, but rather as a subversion attribute and
some file data, I'm pretty sure symbolic links can be stored
in windows hosted repositories today.

They just can't be represented in a working copy created by
windows hosted client. (And what is available in the windows
filesystem today is inadequate to represent symbolic links.)

Thanks,

Joseph
