Eric Kow <kowey at darcs.net> added the comment:

The current FAQ suggests to simulate this by version controlling an
update-symlinks.sh script.

# example update-symlinks.sh
ln -s foo/quux bar
ln -s foo/wibble wibble2

# example _darcs/prefs/defaults
ALL posthook sh update-symlinks.sh

But posthooks do not propagate.  It might be useful to have some sort of
posthook-style pref that does propagate, which would also be good for
"version controlling" file permissions.
