Just to make sure I get this right.  You want a setting that somehow deletes
the symlink itself without following it, right?

There doesn't seem to be a way to do that right now.  It's debatable whether
it is a bug or a missing feature given the very limited support for symbolic
links (or file operations in general) in the Java runtime.  Please let me
mark this as an enhancement request, even if a valid and important one.
