Since Darcs doesn't support symbolic links, it will print a message 
saying so when a user tries to add a symlink to version control.  This 
is not the case when a symlink points to a directory, in which case it's 
followed and 'darcs add' operates on a target directory instead.  This 
behaviour is inconsistent and leads to confusion.
