Wasn’t Wuby an April Fool’s joke?

I would love to see us support Junctions and links down the road, but I don’t see that happening until post 1.0.

Subject: [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
