    Yes. When I do an "rm /mnt/dos_volume/file-with-long-name.txt", I want the
    file *itself* to be gone, just as if I had done "rm
    /mnt/dos_volume/file-w~1.txt". If we want to be able to eliminate the LFN,
    then perhaps "mv /mnt/dos_volume/file-with-long-name.txt
    /mnt/dos_volume/file-w~1.txt" should do it (that is, moving the LFN onto
    its short name)?

    (Disclaimer: I don't know what kind of feasibility/difficulty/cleanliness
    this whole thing has in the first place. BTW, I'd rather not have this
    stuff added in the first place than have it added and not let me remove a
    file using its LFN.)
