Thank you for those links. I believe that some of the details mentioned on those pages are wrong. The user does not need to be an administrator to use links. The user does require a permission to use one form of directory and file linking, but not for the other form.
The real issue is that SVN doesn't store whether the target is a directory or file. That seems solvable. I wish I had time to solve it myself.
