junctions are very unsuitable for incomplete links, not really any upside to it, alot of downsides though. The logging would have to be rewritten and it has to check the link everytime it wites to the logs. The links are more to show that something is incomplete than for actually use. Also using them for uploading purpose would mean they get deleted on complete and then they would be created by user as regular dirs instead, and you would end up with alot of other problems. The only upside of junctions is that they work as regular dirs in windows and can be shared as such over smb. Using them for incomplete dirs is just a very very bad idea.
