In my case, common files are 'common subprojects' which are handled as
'full projects'. As I have one repository per project this means common
files live in parallel to the 'full' files and can be referenced by
relative paths if people check out projects into parallel directories.

There is the 'svn:externals' property which is presumably created to
solve such problems but I have found it more difficult to work with
than with completely separate projects.
