On that topic...
I always felt it was a bit inconsistent that setup still uses the
old-style symlink, but obviously it works fine as otherwise there would
be lots of breakage. I am tempted to rewrite that code to use the .lnk
style symlinks, but I don't want to introduce a possible destabilization
just for aesthetics. Can you think of any real justification for
getting rid of these old-style symlinks?
