File::Copy doesn't handle symlinks?
Message ID:
I just discovered that File::Copy::copy doesn't preserve symlinks. At the minimum, I think a pod patch documenting this is in order.

What I would like to see is some sort of import flag to turn this behavior on and/or a new sub called copy-no-deref, which does what I want it to. Before I do the work of turning in a patch, I thought I'd query what porters thought of this. I know a new module is possible, but despite the age and stability of this module, I really think it belongs here.
