Allow FileSystemLoader to follow symlinks #71

Since python 2.6 os.walk has the 'followlinks' parameter.
Could this be made an option or even a default when using python 2.6 or higher?

When loading templates the FileSystemLoader follows symlinks. So that its list_templates() method don't follow symlinks, is definitely a bug. However just calling os.walk(..., followlinks=True) when using Python >=2.6, won't fix that bug for people using jinja2 with older versions of Python.
