What do you mean? It's the OS which treats symlinks on Unix, and
Windows doesn't. For example you can't put a "link" to a directory
in the middle of a path. And you *can* edit its contents (which is
meaningless for a Unix symlink). It makes no sense to pretend that
they are the same when they are not.
