svn supposedly supports symlinks (though I haven't tested that myself  
yet), and since bioperl-live and bioperl-run are under the same svn  
root (aren't they?) you could make a symbolic link.

The downside of this is that if someone only checks out bioperl-run  
the link would presumably be dangling. Though maybe not, not sure how  
super-smart svn is in this regard.
