[Win32utils-devel] Symlinks for Windows

Hi all,

Dave Burt mentioned the possibility of adding symlinks
to the Dir class.

http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/misc.shtml#junction


There is also Autrijus Tang's symlink Perl module at
http://search.cpan.org/~autrijus/Win32-Symlink-0.04/

Looks easy enough, but it only seems to work for
directories, not regular files.  Should we add this to
the Directory class, or simply define it for the File
class with a big warning sticker?  The former seems to
make more sense, but the latter helps keep things
portable and familiar.

What's the consensus?

Regards,

Dan
