Emacs breaks hard links?

When I save a file in Emacs it seems the original file
is renamed to "example~" and a new file "example"
is created. This causes trouble with hard links:
If the original file was shared by three hard links
then after saving the other two hard links share
the file content with the backup file while the
up-to-date file is not linked to them anymore.

I wonder if this hard-link-breaking-logic was really
intended. Please let me know what you think about this.
