I use "winsymlinks:native". Is there a tool or method with which I can
create a Cygwin symlink by force? (I doubt I would actually want to:
I just want to know if I can, and to test behavior of a Cygwin symlink.)
Is there a tool which will tell me whether a given symlink is Cygwin or
(The output of both readlink and symlinks looks the same, regardless.)
