I don't believe Windows supports directory hard links. I assume though
that you were referring to ``junctions.'' AFAIK, ``junctions'' do not
keep the directory `alive', in that I don't believe there is any
reference counting, nor do they appear as ordinary directories. Thus,
they are more like absolute-path symbolic links than hard links, and I
would say therefore it makes more sense to have them be supported by a
symbolic link facility rather than by the hard link facility.
