One last issue: Windows links/shortcuts.  I tried a few experiments and 
I couldn't get it to work with Shortcuts.  I know there is a way to do 
hard links in Windows NT/2k/XP but I don't remember how, and its 
basically never used.  If Pd was running under Cygwin, then this would 
work since Cygwin supports Shortcuts as symlinks.
