[wix-devs] Support for -shardlinks?

I got a request for a bug fix on the internal 3.7 repo today about -shardlinks and noticed no history for it - at least in the GitHub repos. I seem to recall it was around internally for quite a while. Was it removed from the old CodePlex repos, or just never added externally? Any desire for a port to wix4 (or even wix3)?

(Background: -shardlinks is used to suppress creating hardlinks - a request from some build labs for reasons I don't remember...perhaps to avoid trying at all when the output directory is on another volume or something.)
