i *know* that.  in a previous post, i referred to a utility i read about
in a 3-year-old posting called "symlinks" that uses a .symlinks file
in each directory that will contain symlinks.  it sounds like what i'm
after, and i just wanted a pointer to the utility -- googling didn't 
turn up its current location.

does anyone have a copy of this, or whatever people have settled on as
a common solution?
