This is an SVN question, not specific to TortoiseSVN, and would be
better asked on that mailing list.

SVN support and versions symlinks if your filesystem supports it. If
you don't have symlinks available, check out the svn:externals
property, it does pretty much what you're looking for. It doesn't
maintain 2 copies of the file in the repository, but rather tells SVN
"when you retrieve this directory, also go to this location and pull
the data there." I think it only works for directories though, not
individual files; careful setup of your directory structure can work
that out though.
