Reparse points using the filter supplied with win 2k/xp aren't that great
for doing posix-like symlinks. However, in my bookmarks I have some free
code for writing file system filters for Windows NT/2k/XP. Perhaps we could
write our own filter? This would mean Cygwin symlinks worked the same with
native programs as they do with Cygwin programs. (I will, of course, put my
keyboard where my mouth is if there is interest in this).
