tar task should be able to store symbolic links as links

           Summary: tar task should be able to store symbolic links as links
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.1
          Platform: Sun
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org

If followsymlinks is true, symbolic links are followed and the referenced 
material will be stored in the tar file.

Apparently if followsymlinks is false, symbolic links are not followed and 
NOTHING will be stored for them in the tar file.

I would prefer that in this case symbolic links should be stored as relative or 
absolute pointers in the tar file. In my opinion this is the standard behaviour 
of GNU tar.
