But the status of the issue is NEW, not RESOLVED with resolution FIXED which
is what would be required if the feature were implemented correctly. Also
the project front page mentions that symlinks are expected (if at all possible
in a cross-platform way) to be a post-1.0 feature. I'm sorry, but for now,
you're out of luck with Subversion for versioning symlinks....
