The request for such things is pretty old and has not had enough of a lobby
yet, so it's unlikely to suddenly go in. Especially some people coming from
SourceSafe (VSS) sometimes miss this.

- svn:external (only complete dirs)
- symlinks (not all platforms)
- using libraries/buildscripts/whatever to distribute the files to the
- manually updating per-project copies
- automatically updating per-project copies

Note that I personally consider the VSS style shared sources a bad idea,
because it is not at all visible which projects you are modifying with
your "local" modifications. If a file is in a "common" folder or comes from a
library that is more explicit and doesn't bear the danger of breaking.
