Windows users can create symlinks too. If they're still stuck on XP, you can
use junction 
some messing about); anyone using Vista and up can use the native
'mklink' command for files directly. I do exactly this for my own .bib files
in the TEXMF local tree: symlink (or hard link if you prefer) to the source
.bib file in Dropbox, under both OS X and Win7.
