Actually, it's quite easy to harden links, with standard commands:

find msdos-i386 -type l -printf '%d %p %l\n' \
    | awk '{ printf("ln -fv %s %s\n", substr($3, 3*$1+1), $2) }' \
    | /bin/sh

Does standard ISO 9660 actually support hard links?

I definitely think the FTP archives should contain symlinks.
