I'd say that junction points were a great way to expose this feature
under Win32 - after all, isn't it specifically what they were designed for?

Incidentally, at least one other application uses them for exactly this
purpose; a commercial source control tool named Accurev supports
checked-in symlinks on Windows as well as *nix etc.

The added advantage of junction points over whatever new API Vista
exposes is that it'll work on at least XP (maybe even Win2K?)
