I guess you didn't read chapter 4, which is all about how to create
branches? :-)

Branches and tags are just directories; so the only way to do this is to
copy the latest tag directory to 'release'. Then when a new tag comes out,
delete the 'release' directory, and recreate it as a copy of the latest tag.
You'll have to recreate the 'release' directory every time.

I don't think he's talking about working copies, I think he's talking about
repository changes being replicated via hard-links. And the answer
is "no": at this time, the repository only contains files and directories,
no hard or soft links.
