copy fileset followsymlinks="false" does not copy symlinks at all

I can imagine that one could add an atribute that caused an OS check and if we
it is a *nix set a flag that caused copy to use FileUtils.isSymbolicLink to
identify symlinks. ymlinks could then be reproduced in either absolute form or
minimum relative form or not reproduced in the destination directory based on an
atribute such as copySymlinksAs="none"|"absolute"|"minRelative"

I don't know how much time I can put into it, but I'd be willing to try that if
it sounds like a good idea to anyone else.
