If your filesystem is NTFS, you can create a "junction point" (aka
symlink) from $HOME/.subversion to %APPDATA%\Subversion (or the
opposite), so that they are 2 filesystem locations pointing to the same
physical directory.
I use NTFS Link (http://www.elsdoerfer.info/ntfslink/) to create
junction points.
