Well, I know of "linux2", but I don't know the major unixes.

Though I'd be fine if you said:

if sys.platform not in ('win32', 'cygwin', 'darwin'):

And we can always expand that as we need to.

It might also be better to require a --link (or at least have a 
--no-link) option (possibly also a config entry).

Certainly we should avoid linking the working tree, since that is quite 
a bit more dangerous for end users.
