I thought of saving the symlink contents as normal file contents as well, but I
wanted to keep my changes out of the core rsync code. Attaching the symlink
attributes to the parent directory was carefully written to work for rsync and
there are problems with my code that prevent it being more general.

I'll try the nightly tar. I'm pretty sure that my corporate firewalls are git
hostile. I'll write some code to handle NO_SYMLINK_XATTRS in the next few days
because it's a show stopper for me.
