--- Comment #14 from William A. Rowe Jr. <wrowe@apache.org> ---
Reviewed the original comment #1 and it did raise in a general sense the
issue in comment #12 (although we disagreed on the scope of examples provided,
the dir link was agreed as an APR_LNK, junction was debatable but should still
presented as APR_LNK for the security considerations outlined in #10.)

But this report called out that we did not distinguished by reparse type, which
is the root of comment #12, so let us continue to use this ticket to explicitly
set the behavior type-by-type (which could be patched by the dev to satisfy
own opinion).  I've changed the title slightly to reflect this wider scope.

Sorry for the confusion I introduced in my previous comment.
