I'd love to have a way to follow symlinks, but this needs to be done
with care: when following symlinks, writing to a link may mean writing
outside the Git repository, which brings some security concerns. Not
that following symlinks has to be insecure, but we'd have to make sure
that it does not allow a malicious user to e.g. setup a symlink to
~/.bashrc and then write to it.
