Are symlinks good or evil?

I have a philosophical - and practical issue with a nameless drupalista. Rather than duel to the death, I decided to take it to the group. The question is as to whether symlinks are good practice, or even OK practice – particularly in the case of drupal folders for multiple domains addressing the same codebase, or more questionably, perhaps working around domain-specific links. Yeah they can break if moved and can be hard to tell from 'real' items. So, to save my opponent and I the inconvenience of the certain death of one of us, settle this once and for all please? How are these things? On a scale of ten... from Clean as the riven snow (1) through "is this as good as it gets?" down to evil incarnate (10)?

(Rate each option on a scale of 1-10, where 10 is best)
