not changing symbolic links

Developers will, quite naturally, want to reset the "current" link to point to whatever version they wish to work with
No - it is not necessary (and undesirable) to change the symbolic links. Please read my forums posting (referred to above) for details on how developers should handle this via changes to their shell environment and to their IDE preferences.

And in fact, it has *never* been needed nor has it ever been a good idea to change the symlinks.
