The as-yet-unreleased (but eminently usable) release 1.1 has support
for symbolic links that works like this: on a *nix (or Cygwin) system,
you `svn add' the symbolic link. From then on, other *nix systems
that do `svn co' or `svn up' will get the symbolic link in their
working copies, just as you'd expect; other systems (i.e., non-Cygwin
Windows) get a plain file whose contents consist of the word "link"
followed by the name of the linked-to file.
