hardlinked symlinks are not supported #2379
This part of #2324 is not addressed yet (except that symlinks are not in the documented list of supported hardlinked fs objects).
The problem here is the dual-use of item.source (see #2343), which should be solved first.
Then, hardlinked symlinks could be supported in same way as other hardlinked fs objects.
Lol, my bad! hardlinked symlinks, I thought it meant "hardlinks". Also seems like nilsmeyer didn't get it either "It's just called a hard link (as opposed to a symbolic link, a link is either hard or symbolic)."
Now I understand better why you said "almost nobody use them anyway" (but to be fair, most people also say "do'nt use hardlinks ever, use symlinks" so that's why I confused)
What the hell is a hardlinked symlink? a hardlink on a symlink?
