Symlink instead of moving files

I don't know how all these Jekyllites can be obsessed with "pretty links" (ugh!) and don't care about these curs'd date-prefixed files.... So much extra typing when linking or editing them. I've fixed the linking part with the permalink incantation in the _config.yml with permalink: "/:categories/:title:output_ext". But there's still the extra typing part when you need to go in and fiddle after publishing.

This is a test to see if I can just symbolically link the file to a published filename without bolloxing up the works on the generated side

Note: Success!! *Happy Dance!!* Now, one only need deal with the date stuff in the file names at the moment of publication.

Note: for security reasons, a mailto link is being used. If configured on your end, this is the safest way for both parties. This activates your mailer to send the data entered. See here or here for why that might not work and what to do about it.
