Some horrible news. But there is a new (nearly-serviceable) solution: swap the "real" folder with the symlink.

Real-world example (Windows 7 and newer):

New-Item -type SymbolicLink`
 -Path 'C:\Users\User\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Music'`
 -Target '..\..\..\Dropbox\Music'

be sure to run it as administrator

hope this helps
