Perhaps it is really, really simple:

         cat .symlinks | xargs ln -s


  i can see that it's not a deep solution.  but since
that's the case, why did at least one person go to
the trouble of once writing a script to handle it?

  tell you what -- to avoid wasting any more 
bandwidth, let's do this.  if you off-hand happen to 
know of a pre-rolled script that's equivalent to the
aforementioned "symlinks", drop me a note offline
with a pointer and i'll be amused to see how similar
it is to the solution i already came up with.

  if you *don't* know of a pointer to such a script,
please don't waste any more time by telling me

a) CVS doesn't handle symlinks, or
b) it's really, really simple

  in other words, if you don't know the answer to
my *actual* question, just hit 'delete' and keep moving.
