Can I use cp -l (hard links) on working copies?

Hello everybody,

is it possible to use "cp -l" to create copies of the working copy
using hard links, on a unix filesystem? The benefit would naturally be
space savings on the hard drive. This is naturally assuming an editor
which unlinks before it modifies files.

If not, is it ok to just do a proper copy of the working copy and/or
move it around in the filesystem?

For what it's worth, I'm currently using Subversion 0.20.1.

Thanks for a good product! Mainly we're using it as a
rather simple CVS-replacement, but we're definitely going to explore
its possibilities further.
