Well, I thought we should flesh out some design decisions.  Like, should
we define symlink and symlink? in the File class?  Do we need to modify
any of the IO methods to make them understand our symlinks?  I'd rather
not have a separate "symlink" package - I wanted the methods integrated
in the base classes if possible.

This is where a test/unit test suite would be very handy - I'll be the
first to admit I don't know all the specs for symlinks.  I guess I need
to read some man pages.  Anyone feel like drawing up some test cases?  I
think this is definitely a case where we want to test first and work our
way backwards.

Thoughts?  Comments?

Dan
