It's not about what I think, but about support. I admit I never looked
into this but I don't expect eclipse svn providers (none of them) or
tortoisesvn to support symbolic link on windows. If you know what
windows "providers" works then we could document it and add the needed
svn properties, but if we already know no provider is going to look at
that property then we can simply keep doing things manually.

If I understood it correctly, the current "hack" is needed because of
bugs in google eclipse plugin and bugs in the gwt maven plugin, maybe
in future they will fix them.

I documented the use of junction because while I read the README and
it suggested me to keep a local manual copy of that folder I knew ntfs
junction was there to help me, so while I did it and verified it was
working I also updated the README.
