Windows and Mac are the filesystems that I know of where case of file names do 
not matter.  I will send a patch soon that identifies symbolic links using 
canonicalpath and absolutepath and deletes just the symlink instead of the 
file/dir it links to.  Using Java, deleting a symlink is a bit round-about, but 
very much possible.

If there are any other OSs other than Mac and Windows (that are case-
insensitive), please modify the isCaseSensitive method accordingly and that 
will be all there is to it.

Thanks,
Magesh
