Is there a way to get back the previous 'ln' behavior and have
it create a NTFS hard link? The new behavior -- having it create
a hardlink that works only in cygwin is less than useful to me, since
I use cygwin to maintain windows.
Is there an environment variable for this?
I believe this also makes it less compatible with the windows posix
subsystem -- which is not exactly apropos to me, but may be for those
needing posix compatibility across subsystems...
simply having the env var might be easiest -- if it is there.
