I find these functions (which underlie the File Manager) are very useful, but I would love to be able to ask them to ignore symbolic links.  For example, I have a macro which walks the whole tree of our (large) project and determines which files are write-able and therefore I've edited.  It's pointless in this case to check symbolically linked files, but I can't get it to stop, and that vastly increases the time the macro takes.  Thanks!
