forgot to precise that below is only for symbolic
links :) 

> No problem. Links don't exist in Windows.
> Why ? Because M$ wants to make dos/console mode
> disappear.
> 
> There are only shortcuts, stored as name.lnk, that
> contain :
> - an icon (or path to the icon)
> - a path to the target
> - a comment.
> 
> So the use of cygwin to simulate a link is :
> - empty icon (this would be meaningless)
> - empty path (this is not convenient as it is in
> C:\blah\blah\filename format)
> - store the unix path in the comment
> -> possible because any text can be stored in that
> place. don't remember how much the string can be
> long.
