> FileUtils.isSymlink returns false for broken symlinks.
> In contrast, java 7 java.nio.file.Files.isSymbolicLink() returns true for broken symlink.
> One possible work around for java 6 and below is to use the fact that File.exists() returns
false for a broken symlink and the fact that the file is found in its parents directory listing.
> I don't have a compelling argument for fixing this, here is a candidate patch.
