So if the target file changes, you won't be able to "svn log" the symlink and see those changes, for example. Maybe knowing this will make preserving history seem less important.

I want the history of the file name that represents the sym link (including the history of when it was *not* a sym link), not the thing that the sym link points to.

Does this not work?
