SubjectRe: Proposal: restrict link(2)

Besides, by link()ing to a file you change it. And if you don't have the
ability to write to it, you should _NOT_ be able to change a file.
symlinks don't count, as they are just pointers to a file that may, or may
not exist. Hard links become the file itself.

Incorrect. Being able to link to a file does not mean you can change
