Um, the "silent breaking of hard links" is in many case a _good thing_
-- it's quite common to use hard-link trees to "snapshot" a
directories, and depend on your editor to snap the link if you change
a file.

It would be a nasty, nasty, shock (as in, lots of corrupted files) to
those people who depend on this feature to have the default suddenly
change out from under them!
