What about a hard link then? (~/My Documents == $fake_c/My Documents)
Of course it won't work if $fake_c is on another partition, and spaces
in filename in ~/ are not something I personnally like, but it'd get the
correct functionnality most of the time. Bonus is ~/My Documents would
survive the removal of the $fake_c (but its contents wouldn't, sadly, so
I'm not sure about the last point :P).
