my feelings on this are that:
- symbolic link permissions should be enabled via a mount option,
eg `symperm', and
- `nosymperm' should be the default, for at least 1.3.
john's problem is simply _one_ that will result from this. i've listened
to people complain about irix and hpux(?) having symlink perms, and the
lossage that comes from them for several years now. lets do this right...
