Similarly, there is relatively little debate about refusing to conform to some of the more brain-dead POSIX details, such as the aforementioned directory hard link feature.Thats decidedly optional, isn't it? So failing link() on directories isn't a conformance violation anyway.
(If it wasn't for NFS, I suspect a much wider violation would be failure to suppport the seekdir()/telldir() horror show.)
