Please consider adding features to ln to allow recursive linking of files in a directory and the use of wildcards to support that feature.

At present, there appears to be no way to link large numbers of files in a "batch"-type mode - each file must be linked individually, or a work-around used such as for example "for i in /usr/local/lib/*; do ln -s $i /usr/lib/ ; done". It would be nice to have that functionality integrated into ln.

Thanx and Regards,
