OK, Art. Here's another question, excuse the ignorance. What about
atomic renames of directories? Trying to preserve that while banning hard
linked dirs looks more complicated. Maybe the best solution is just
removing it from ln -F.
People will still be able to cause trouble with fsdb. And perhaps there
is some deranged app that wants hard links. You'd be breaking
compatibility with every other UNIX OS.
If you ever would give them a helping hand,
You can be sure they'll chop off the arm.
Never, ever, never trust a Klingon; you will always regret it.
