So win32 does support symlinks, but python's stat doesn't recognize
them?  Does this affect your march 18th patch?

Looking more closely at python's posixmodule.c, there appears to be a
lot of win32 specific code that you may find helpful, or that should
be imported into rdiff-backup's cmodule.c.  For instance, check out
the posix_do_stat command.
