"Brute force!" That's as clever as TeX: it uses just a few real files
and the rest consists of less expensive symbolic links (the mode of
operation is derived from that "secondary" name, so that "DVI" latex
and pdflatex can be the same programme). And the hardlink costs
nothing (in a UNIX file system): just some bits in the directory's node.
When in doubt, use brute force.
