Good point. But as FAQ maintainer it is my duty to point out weak spots 
in the documentation though. And based on that experience, I can say 
that even seasoned Linux users don't know all the intrinsics of ln (and 
have been referred to that FAQ entry). So I think that a change of "ln 
-s" to "ln -sv" would be in line with our intended audience and the 
capabilities which we expect from them.
