three projects using the same file (symbolic links?)

I have a question regarding the clever use of version control. I have
two projects that use one file:

project 1:


project 2:


In the example file2a is used by both projects. I want to have it in a
way that the changes I make in the directory of a project are
immediately visible in the other directory.

Without version control a symbolic link from project 2 to project 1's
file2a would do the job. I am currently using CVS and this overwrites
the symbolic link when I do a commit. The result is that I have two
different copies of file2a in the working directories.

From the SVN manual I got the impression that SVN does not override the
symlink, but it does not check in the file either. It just records the
fact that there is a symbolic link. I am looking for a way to work on
project 2, change file2a and have this change in the versioning system
when I do a commit.

Is this possible somehow with SVN?

Thanks and greetings
