Thanks for your feedback.

There is also a bug report [1] where the same behavior is requested. I
don't have any strong preference. Although I usually don't put "Link
to ..." in front of my symbolic links, I could imagine that it helps
people who don't know the concept yet. On the other hand, those probably
don't know how to do middle-drag / drag with alt pressed.

Assuming most of you agree that it is somewhat annoying, we can remove
it. Opinions?
