I was looking at this proposed patch and I had a couple questions:
What is the intended behavior when following symlinks and not reaching a
file before the indicated depth? Should it transfer the last-found
symlink in the chain? Or the original symlink?
The patch appears to be unable to handle relative symlinks -- was it
only used with absolute symlinks?
I've checked in an updated patch into the "patches" dir in CVS named
"links-depth.diff". I think that it works as your original patch did.
