pseudo-symlinks on directories

maybe we must look at this issue at safety point, when deleting such 
directories (that look like simple dirs but are links and application 
cannot know this) we will delete all files inside even directories to 
which link points.

i think that this will be surprising for user, "deleted one directory 
but lost files in other directories". he cannot know that directory is 

so i think that even making directory look like not-working link is ok.
