thinking more about this, this has to be one of the key recurrent problems
user have on ant.

If we were ever to start a native library for ant to fix the missing bits in
java, this would have to be top of the list for implementation, a way to get
and set the bitmask on unix files, the other being to probe for a filename
being a symlink.

Yet I fear for the complexity of the system if things like <copy> and <jar>
suddenly change their behaviour when a native library is on the path...we'd
probably get a whole new set of support calls.
