      Description

      i need to buid archives ( tar for example ) with symbolic links

      the plugin build an archive with a file containing the destination of the link, not the link itself

      => the plugin need an option to know if deferencement of links is needed
      this is just like -h option of tar
      -h, --dereference
      don't dump symlinks; dump the files they point to

      actually, if you do an archive of /lib, for example, many file will be in double with différent names. extract of archive will not be the exactly the same as the source of the archive. => this is a test !
