following symlinks alone is not always bad, following recursive symlinks can be.

adding code to check whether a symlink is recursive shouldnt add much expense, as it can be run after a symlink has been identified. if the symlink refers to a directory under the current starting point, it should be ignored.. thus i propose a config option:

ignore_recursive_symlinks

thanks.
