ln -s

ln -s is nifty

a spot check shows that ln doesn't check if the origin is a valid file!

so you can do evil stuff like this:

ln -s http://www.memepool.com memepool

lrwxrwxrwx 1 niv 500 23 Feb 20 00:01 memepool -> http://www.memepool.com

In the long run, this is probably buggy and undesirable behaviour. In the short run,
this is another rather nifty place to squeeze meaning into things.
