True for larger companies but the symlinks discussed were directories  
within the sites/ directory.  There should be no issue of improper  
symlink because the directories for the symlink live in the same  
directory as the symlink.

cd sites/
mkdir sample.com
ln -s sample.com www.sample.com
ln -s sample.com dev.sample.com

I do this for sites that can be accessed by www.sample.com as well as
