This is cool.  I'll have to give it a try.  On windows directory 
junction points would probably work as well.  Boris do you know how the 
windows client works in regard to a checkout from your server with the 
symbolic links?  Does it create junction points or does it just create 
copies?  I'll go ask an SVN list.
