Just a comment here. Every time the filename mangling
code changes to produce a different name, it is possible
to break PIF file shortcuts under Windows 9x. I noticed
this between 2.0.3 and 2.0.6. Only affects PIF files
to DOS programs whose filenames are not 8.3 compliant
obviously. Most often occurs when a batch file uses a LFN.
