The CVS version has post using refile, and refile does links if it can.
I expect this is the same in 1.2 since I can't see any code changes
that would suggest otherwise.

According to the man page for refile, the argument -link doesn't cause
the creation of links in the destination folders; rather it preserves
the version in the source folder as a link. Multiple destination folders
are always links if possible.
