Alias it!

If you replace the symbolic link with an alias, either through GUI or through OSXUtils on the CLI, it should work even with the example cited above where one volume becomes 'Machintosh HD 1.'

I believe that aliases can't be followed from the command line, which kindof defeats the point of worrying about symbolic links. If you never use the command line, aliases are all you need, and you don't need to worry about where your symbolic links point. If you do, then aliases don't cut it.
