This breaks virtualenv3 on Python 3.2, which simply test for the existence of os.symlink, which then fails for lack of privileges.  Perhaps an os.can_symlink() method, returning a boolean?  It can request privileges if you like, but provides a simple test that lets scripts know whether they should attempt a symlink or not.
