OK, time to let the voice of the people be heard!

It turns out that there may be a way to support "reserved" names (at
least on NT) as regular files (i.e. you could have "/usr/bin/com1" as
a regular file).  However, the choice to do so is controvertial, as
we'd be creating files that regular Windows tools can't deal with the
"usual" way.

So, I created a poll.  Please visit the poll page and vote for
your preference!
