Hi Dennis,

Sorry, I really don't want to do this. I understand that it will make
your life easier, but it's also likely to make user support much
harder. The existing setup means that people reporting bugs at least
can give us a filename to describe what they're using. With such a
symlink, we're likely to see even more people reporting bugs that we
won't be able to help with... :-/
