symbolic link handling

    Hi - I have a number of CVS repositories in my Linux directory, with a symbolic link which points to whichever one I'm currently working in. They all contain the same set of files, but on different branches.

    It would be useful if when I changed the symbolic link to point to another repository I didn't have to also change the path in tkcvs. That is, tkcvs currently expands a symbolic link to the path of wherever it is pointing to. This also means that if I have say 3 repositories, I need 3 sets of bookmarks, whereas if symbolic links weren't expanded I would only need one.

    There might be a good reason for expanding symbolic links, but if not, would it be possible for tkcvs to not expand them?
