The irony is that people are busy complaining about not being able to
update their kernels for security reasons while someone else is
complaining about not being able to do what can only be described in
2018 as very bad practice.

The right answer IMHO is to forget about symlinks being followed server

to re-architect your storage so they are no longer needed.
