It's possible to support Cygwin-style symlinks without building Emacs
as a Cygwin application.  (Cygwin symlinks are simply text files with
a special signature recognized and handled by the library primitives.)

Anyway, that was only an example; I don't know about any work being
done on adding such support to Emacs.  The main point is that having
`stat' that simulates inode numbers is useful in a variety of
situations, and reduces maintenance burden in the long run.
