Yep, you spotted the one case that isn't obscure, as I did after sending last
comment.And we don't want to get into "somedir/" versus "somedir" for a
crossplatform tool.

Assuming <delete dir="foo" followsymlinks="false"/> is in the docs then I'm
happy. (I am anyway, because I won't make the same mistake again.) Thanks for
your rapid response.

We could still point out in the docs that it won't necessarily work, over
networks etc. but the main thing is to draw attention to the issue by
documenting the feature, as usual.
