You can't do that only in the Windows client, at least if I'm
understanding the nature of reparse points correctly.  The AFS file server
would also have to be able to store the reparse point.  Think of it as
akin to a UNIX device file.  So this means new data structures available
inside AFS volumes, which has rather wide-ranging implementation effects.
