Re: possible to 'share' or 'link' to common directories?

You want to set you svn:externals property, which you can set by right
clicking \a, going to the subversion tab, and selecting svn:externals
from the dropdown.

See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.0/ch07s03.html for details on how
to set that.
