Comment (by iandunn):

 So far, the only problem I've run into with symlinking `wp-content` is
 that these files are sometimes deleted during `build` and `watch` tasks:


 One potential solution would be to adjust `Gruntfile.js` to avoid that,
 but I haven't dug into that, and any unintended consequences it'd have.

 For now I'm just symlinking everything inside `wp-content` ''except''
 those files. It seems to work fine at first glance, but I'll keep working
 with it for a few days.

 Related: #44492, where symlinking was tried for most of the `src/` folder,
 but that didn't work out because of problems with Windows support.
