Discuss PEP 662: Editable installs via virtual wheels

Haven’t read all the rest of the replies since this one, because I’d like to ask you to stop expecting developers on Windows to be able to enable symlinks. That is simply not a viable assumption to make at the level we’re working at.

Happy to discuss another time all the reasons why, but I’m making this post a simple and direct request to drop this idea completely. Nothing we design can rely on symlinks being usable on Windows.
