Sorry for the confusion. Either keeping what it was or adding a new
command [which essentially calls (vc-responsible-backend (vc-follow-link
file)) ] would be the best option regarding performance.  e need to
clarify that symlinks are not followed in vc-responsible-backend, and If
the first option is adopted, mention that vc-follow-link should be used
if link following is desired.
