Symlinks have at least one other problem -- or at least an incompletely implemented feature -- that makes their behavior unlike the "ln -s source_file target_file" behavior that presumably they should emulate: they work only on individual files (well, cr_items). It is not possible to symlink a folder, though it seems as if it should be.
We discussed this last year and there were different opinions about how to approach this. I think it would be great if symlinks were actually finished so that they work like "ln -s" -- one way or another.
