Operations made to that tree e.g.:
 - Moving 'groups' / linked files around the tree doesn't move them in the EFS
 - Moving Deleting files from tree doesn't delete them from EFS merely
excludes them from the view.
 - Adding new linked resources to the tree doesn't affect the
underlying EFS tree.

The use case is that the user 'imports' a tree virtually into their
workspace. They can then rearrange the links into any arrangement that
they see fit without affecting the underlying files in the version
control.  By virtue of being linked, the IResources are arbitrarily
