If I understand correctly, this would mean that every Emacs package
that deals with files will have to be changed to go through this extra
layer of resolving shortcuts to get the real file names.  Unless we
implement this with some kind of file handler for *.lnk files, it is
IMHO impractical to request Lisp programs to go through
w32-resolve-shortcut.

And I think Jari didn't mean to support only *.lnk files, so the
handler solution won't fit the bill, even if the subtle problems with
supporting such features via file-name handlers are solved, or aren't
relevant to this specific issue.
