[Win32utils-devel] File.symlink

Creating a symlink in Windows requires the SE_CREATE_SYMBOLIC_LINK_NAME
privilege. By default, that means it will fail unless run with elevated
privileges.

For our File.symlink method in win32-file, should we automatically (and
temporarily) elevate the privileges to create the link? Or just let it fail
without proper privileges?

Regards,

Dan
