That sounds like it has potential. Gives us a handle on controlling
write access to shared files as well. A list-owner can retrieve but not
change a symlink, but either the sharer or sharee can break the link.
Oops, maybe the sharee should be notified if he still has references to
the link and the sharer breaks it, otherwise his list is broken due to
someone else's actions. Don't allow the sharee to break it if he has
references to it.
