Does subversion support server-side-only symlinks? that is, symlinks
which exist in the repository only, and checking out a directory would
check out the actual file? ( = support for "symlinks" on non-unix
systems & support for "linked files" without needing to check out both
the "link" and the "file")

I've often had the need to either check out single files from another
directory or the desire to exclude certain files depending on operating
system. There are many obvious and simple ways to add these features
either in reality or as client-side hacks, but if there is a non-hack
way for mere mortals to add such a thing, let me at it.

(anyone mentioning svn:externals or other "whole-directory" operations
will be shot by god himself, with a gun)
