You could use the svn:externals property to include folders and their
contained object in different locations of your repository. If you
change the document in one place (link or original), the next update of
your working copy will propagate the change to all locations.

Subversion 1.5.x supports only external directories, Subversion 1.6 will
- according to the developers - support linking single files too.
