I think this is fairly safe with directories if you are keeping locks inside
the individual repositories.  It probably doesn't work properly with LockDir
set in the CVSROOT/config file if you are referring to multiple projects in a
single repository and almost certainly doesn't if you are referring to
projects in separate repositories.

There are quite definately locking and other issues involved with symlinking
files.  Search the mail archives of this list for more.  There was a recent
discussion on the topic of symlinks.
