symlinks in the server

Hi All,

I have a question regarding something that we can do in CVS and I
would like to know whether it is possible is subversion.

In CVS, on the server filesystem one can create a file/directory that
is actually a symlink to another file/directory. This situation is
useful, say when there are common files across departments.

Simplistic example of directory structure (at the cvs server)

                               /....<other files>
                        /...<other directories>
   it/doc/index.html.template --> ../../engineering/doc/index.html.template

The idea is that the same index.html.template file can be shared
across both departments. Those in IT checkout only the it directory
and those in engineering checkout only the engineering directory.
However, both have the exact same copy of the index.html.template.
Since the symlink is at the server side, the history, status
everything is the same for both files.

Anything in Subversion that gives me this functionality?

Thanks much!
