I checked 9P. It's a nice stuff, but in reality I don't see it in
near future on my stock debian testing desktop. To the contrary
patching mc to add this feature is quite possible and much simpler,
from my standpoint.

It's just a simple "symlink tracking" it can't be *that* difficult...

Maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to produce a patch for that, together
with a friend of mine, would you guys be willing to add such a patch
to the trunk?

PS: I'm very happy to see mc development flourishing again!
