Sounds like you want externals so that you can point at your common
files from multiple sub-projects.

Simplified tree:

 \_Common (external pointing to /Common)
 \_Common (external pointing to /Common)

Developers working on Linux would check out the /Linux subdirectory,
Windows devs obviously would check out the /Windows directory.

See the Subversion book's section on Externals for more.
