mklink, which exposes a functionality that encompasses both symlinks,
hardlinks, junctions (which are kind of a rebind mount), and symlinks
of directories.

As mentioned before, this is for the NTFS version in Vista and up. They
do not translate horribly well across networks, and have some
restrictions on what permissions you need to have to make them, but in
general, they're quite useful.
