Well there is but it takes a small wrapper script around svn to save the
symlink as a property of the directory plus add it to the ignore file. I
use subversion for maintaining entire filesystems so my wrapper takes
care of symlinks, devices plus ownership and permissions. If updates
only set the modification time on the file to what was in the repository
I would be very happy.
