Subject Ivy symlink creation under Windoozer(XP)
Date Tue, 05 Mar 2013 22:22:07 GMT

There is a fixed issue record, related to Cygwin symlinks -, saying that symlinks 
under windows are not supported properly. So Ivy doesn't establish them, 
but copies jars instead.

But would be nice to have creation of symbolic links under Windoozer(XP) 
customizable, to be able to use e.g. Masatoshi Kimura's 

symbolic link driver(and accompanying ln.exe command line tool).
These symlinks are handled by file system filter driver, so other 
programs(e.g. javac.exe) believe they're accessing file the link points 
to. And hard links under windows are also possible at least since 
win2000 (called "junction points"|, fsutil hardlink create| ${lnk} ${file}).
