FYI, Windows 2000 and XP both (partially) support variaties of hard and
symbolic links under NTFS in certain scenarios.  Then of course there are
also the half-ass implemented Windows shortcut files (*.lnk).  Finally,
software also exists that allows Windows to access a *nix based file system
where regular *nix style links might exist.  Depending on your exact needs
and purposes, I just thought those might be worth mentioning.  Don't believe
these impact your constants at all, but would hate to see link support
omitted for Windows if only due to lack of familiarity with these features.
