Hi Andrew,

Doing this would require I got tracked which one comes from which. So
it would imply some logic (and db) over it. With the hardlinking way,
it wouldn't require anything. The idea is that you don't have to do
anything else in the server.

I understand that it would be imposible to do it for windows users
(but using cygwin), but for *nix ones yes...
