I'm certainly not going to commit any symlinks for now, I just removed
the ChangeLog one so I could use a local symlink on my system.  But I
was thinking of planning ahead, so that if we do need symlinks in the
future for something, we know what the available solutions are.  SVN
didn't do it  elegantly, but at least it (kinda) worked.

Thanks to Alex for the info!
