    SubjectRe: How does chown(2) works with symlinks?
    Personally, for the sake of consistentness, I would prefer
    if chmod() and chown() both follow symlinks.

    And permissions for a symbolic link /are/ relevant; you cannot
    readlink() a symbolic link that has no read permission.
    (try ls -l /proc/1)
