Sorry, I disagree. It's not always obvious to the user when a file has
hard links, and I can't see any situation where the pre-recent-patch
behavior (overwriting the actual file when using -P on a hard link) is
the expected outcome.

It's all well and good to say, "tough luck," but I don't think that's
what our users expect.
