Thanks! I'll try this approach.

>From looking at the code, it seems that (load) doesn't support symbolic
links on non-Windows systems, either. If that's correct, and if we think it
is desirable to add symbolic link support on all platforms, the additional
loading routine for .lnk wouldn't help on Linux/OSX/whatever because .lnk
doesn't have a "magic" meaning there, right?
