thx to Matt for the pointer to the existing commons-io FileUtils (see Bug 35818).

Agreed, having symlinks handled by the JVM might be the best solution. But since
we all stumble daily over those and JVMs haven't delivered on this so far, why
not aiming for the second best and giving it a (temporary) home in the jakarta
family of projects? (instead of everybody making his own
half-hearted-quick-fixes all the time)

Also, "This means that any code we wrote ... might not work against older or
future versions of ..." - isn't that true for almost any interface/third-party
component one programs against/with?
