Re: Treating Junctions consistently, as "normal dirs" as w/linux "bind"-type mount

I would argue against all junctions being treated blindly.
The difference with bind mounts in Linux is that in Linux you don't have the information available within the filesystem itself, and have no other option,
than to treat them as regular directories.
Only direct volume junctions cause an issue, and this is what should be fixed,
if possible, not sidetracked with questionable workarounds.
	Could you describe the benefits of your proposed solution?

	You do know that MS originally called junctions "mountpoints",
right? So why would cygwin treating them as such be a "questionable workaround"?

	How would you want to treat them?
