Just by the way: have you thought about using windows NTFS hardlinks to
represent Unix symlinks?

I'm not sure whether that would be a good idea, it might get a real pain
to keep track of what is a link and what isn't. Also many Win32 tools
just aren't aware that something might be a link so potentially
disastrous effects might occur when using other tools on the WC...
