Pretty much. If unix wasn't already using a symlink it would answer
it completely, but with a fairly well-known example of a better way
to do it, it makes me wonder why the Linux developers didn't do it
the same way. They are smart folks, so I figured maybe there was a
good reason, but there doesn't have to be. ;-)
