What kind of symlinks?  Although it's not recommended, you can symlink
*directories* in the repository, as long as you don't use LOCKDIR in
your config file to put the lock files somewhere else.  If you do, or if
you symlink individual files, you're completely defeating CVS's locking
scheme and opening yourself up to all sorts of potential corruption.
