Thanks for your suggestion.  There is a great hesitancy on
the part of the group to implementing extra features like 
this to work around glaring bugs in operating system 
software, particularly software in "userland".  We feel 
that a better solution to this problem is, say, a perl 
script which "fixes" that problem right after a restore, 
rather than implementing it into Apache.  Since the user
probably has write access to the directory the symlink is
sitting in, they can remove it and make a new link anyways.
