[Ironruby-core] File.symlink

While working with Ivan on the amp project, I came across a windows error
when trying to create symlinks using File.symlink. This is
well-documented<http://www.ruby-doc.org/core/classes/File.html#M002533>and
has a
few <http://rubyforge.org/docman/view.php/85/1697/Dir.html>
fixes<http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/246292>,
but nothing realistic. The Windows-only implementation of Ruby, wuby, uses
the mklink in Vista and Win7 to create symlinks. While this isn't
necessarily a consideration for IronRuby, I was wondering if any of you have
come across a decent solution to this problem.

Thanks,

Ryan Riley
