Not sure where you heard that, but it will cause you much more work. I use
symlinks in the repository, with no problems.

You might consider using ampersand modules instead - that's what they're
designed for. Have a closer look at the documentation of the modules file
(in the "administrative files" section of the manual, IIRC).

Other than the symlink comments above, sounds good to me. Make sure your web
server knows to ignore directories named 'CVS' (I believe Apache has an
option to allow you to do that).
