Do you know if that particular situation was posed as a limitation to the feature being implemented? I feel this could be solved through the use of a disabled state for symlinks that are broken/unavailable for whatever reason.

Testing whether a symlink is broken is probably the easy part, however. Can anyone shed light on the technical implications of allowing symlinks to be traversed in the file browser? (Additionally I've noticed that Finder allows traversal of symlinks in column browser mode, but *not* in list mode.)
