I believe Tom's version that flattens sym-links poitingin outside of the
tree is a heavily-patched one. ANd to be honest, now I've considered the
options it won't quite do what I'm looking for anyway. Once the temporary
trees are made using cp -L (to make hard links) most of the sym-links it
may have been able to fix are not going to be referenceable anyway...
<sigh> For now, I'll leave that bit alone.
