Does SubVersion allows to share a file/revision among multiple paths ?

Hello !

In a single repository, say I have:

sub1/mls.cpp
sub2/mls.cpp
sub3/mls.cpp

All three paths (projects) need that mls.cpp file. Is there a way to
have 'mls.cpp' appear in all three paths but being a single entity ?
That is: if mls.cpp is modified by a commit touching path "sub1", the
mls.cpp in sub2 and sub3 are instantly in synch too ?

It looks to me all I can do is move that file to some:

common/mls.cpp

and have all other projects refer to that single copy. But this is not
as handy as the above 'link'.

Is this achievable with current version 1.0x ?
Is this part of 1.1 ?
What are the plans ?
Is this even a good idea ?
Should I consider other ways of doing that ?

Thanks for any advice,
