   Even though I am against B77, I would be for disallowing symlinks on
   a directory by directory basis.  I think that is a better and more
   general solution.

You can already do this --- Options FollowSymLinks (or not).  I don't
think that's the issue addressed by B77; if you do have a way to use
selective Options FollowSymlinks to make it possible to disable it for
UserDirs which are accessed through the autmounter, a whole *lot* of
people would be interested.
