Windows itself doesn't support symlinks, at least not the exact same
symlinks as you find on *NIX. The Windows version of symlinks is only
supported on certain versions of NTFS.

According to Wikipedia, Vista has true symlinks.

To get a symlink into a repository, it has to be first created in a
WC, then committed. But I wouldn't recommend doing this unless
everyone using your repository is using an OS that supports true
symlinks.
