[Cdash] CDash php "symlink()" usage does not work when running on Windows XP

This error:

  <b>Fatal error</b>:  Call to undefined function symlink() in <b>C:\dev\My Tests\CDash-trunk\xml_handlers\upload_handler.php</b> on line <b>305</b><br />

shows up here (from a Windows XP machine):


Given that symlink will never be supported via php on Windows XP...

What should we do about this test failure? (I think it's a real problem in the code on Windows XP.)

Is there a way to make the upload_handler work without using symlinks?

Isn't the symlink a "nicety" and not absolutely required for downloading a file that's been uploaded...?
