OMG! When were junctions changed to no longer behave like symlinks?
I wanted that for years because it was apparent to me that MS
intended them to function more as mount-points than symlinks and
event referred to them as mountpoints in some of their earlier
literature on them.
Anyway -- outstanding! At the time, there was no
'bind' option in fstab so that wasn't available either...cool!
