I took a crack at implementing the change to make difftool -d use
symlinks more aggressively. I've tested it lightly, and it works for
the limited cases I've tried. This is my first foray into the Git
source code, so it's entirely possible that there are unintended side
effects and regressions if other features depend on the same code path
and make different assumptions.
Your thoughts on the change?
