I would recommend against symlinks at any rate; not only do they cause
mirrors/caches to duplicate data, they're usually a sign of sloppy design.
They're useful primarily as a crutch to aid in migrations.  I would
re-examine the principles that suggest that duplicate URL's to the same
data is a good idea.

Seems to me that anything under a URL with "builds" in it should be
considered different than "releases" - builds are things that are either
automatically generated from cron or candidates built by humans to be
considered releases, but once declared as an actual end-user release,
should be put somewhere else.

MHO, of course.
