Windows symlinks

It seems currently D cannot create Symlinks on Windows:

https://dlang.org/library/std/file/symlink.html

but I dont really see a good reason why this is the case. Plenty of other
languages offer this, such as Go:

https://golang.org/pkg/os#Symlink

Nim:

https://nim-lang.org/docs/os.html#createSymlink,string,string

PHP:

https://php.net/function.symlink

Python:

https://docs.python.org/library/os#os.symlink

Dart:
