Me too, definitly.

Don't know. But I don't know of *any* win32 admin that would use tar for
his backups.. There is the builtin backup tool, which handles junctions
fine. There is also a multitude of 3rd party tools (which is what you
normally use in a larger installation, since the builtin tool doesn't
backup over the network very well). AFAIK, they all use the backup API,
so they should work with it.
If it *doesn't* supprot it, it should still backup correctly. And
recover should probably work as well as long as you add the junction
manually first - since it shows up as just a directory to anyone who
doesn't know how to handle it.
