      Explorer might interpret them as soft links. But I'm not sure w're talking
      about the same thing. .LNK shortcuts existed on my W98 system (on a FAT32
      filesystem) but I've heard say that NTFS had a kind of soft links that FAT32
      hasn't got. I'm not sure what it is, though.

      If I do just "dir" (which is what I did) I don't. But I do see it (as
      "Application Data") with "dir /a: " or in Windows Explorer, where I
      configured the folders to show hidden files, albeit in a different color
      (not as bright).

      Try to change Bram's mind about where Vim files must go. I'm happy with the
      existing "vim philosophy" of storing them.
