Not sure what you're getting at with this last part, but are you aware
of the "svn:externals" property? It's "almost" a symbolic link, in that
it lets you point to arbitrary external directories or files which
should always be included in a "checkout" or "export". This lets you,
for example, build a sort of "deployment" file structure which looks
different than the "development" file structure.

If what you're looking for is "shared" projects a la Visual SourceSafe,
I certainly hope Subversion never incorporates this "feature"!
