Unfortunately, this is the case... So I am kinda fighting an uphill battle, as protability pretty much trumps anything around

My current thought of how to do them portably (AKA ignored where not supported, unfortunately) is some what of an extension to the
hack I am using now, where the symbolic links are stored in a property on the directory that contains them. I have scripts to manage
this, but it adds huge overhead, and it is hard to get 100% accuracy.

I think shared files (I see them as repository hard links) could be a valuable feature.. It just isnt what I am looking at.
