3831 was committed for a reason. An actual bug had been encountered
-- I don't remember what, but cmpilato may remember. We shouldn't
just back it out.

It may be that a flag to svn_io_check_path() (I know, I know, another
flag) to control how to treat links is a good solution; since
different callers have different needs, it may be the cleanest way to
go.

Let's first see if Mike remembers what the problem was.
