> i need to buid archives ( tar for example ) with symbolic links
> the plugin build an archive with a file containing the destination of the link, not the
link itself
> => the plugin need an option to know if deferencement of links is needed 
> this is just like -h option of tar
>   -h, --dereference
>               don't dump symlinks; dump the files they point to
> actually, if you do an archive of /lib, for example, many file will be in double with
différent names. extract of archive will not be the exactly the same as the
source of the archive. => this is a test !
