Here's an example. Most of my files are managed under Subversion,
with a single repository. I have a perl directory containing my
Perl scripts. But some of my Perl scripts are on my web server,
which corresponds to the www/software directory. For instance,
these two files are the same one:
So, having a way to tell that to Subversion would be a good feature.
For the moment, this is handled by a script.

A symlink wouldn't be sufficient (or would be less practical), as my
website also contains "real" symlinks. So, I want to make a difference
between the two kinds of links.
