Is there a reason why you can't programatically set ownership of a
symbolic ink?  The following code

if( symlink( TARGET, LINK ))
  echo 'Successfully created ' . LINK . "\n";

  if( @chown( LINK, NEW_UID ))
    echo 'Successfully changed ownership for ' . LINK . "\n";

    if( @chgrp( LINK, NEW_UID ))
      echo 'Successfully changed group for ' . LINK . "\n";


echos out:

Successfully created XXX
Successfully changed ownership for XXX
Successfully changed group for XXX

yet when I go take a look at it in the directory, the group for the
link has not been changed to what I set it to.  Is that not something
you can do for symbolic links programatically?
