Accessing URL's

I would like to propose the following extension (not too difficult, but
I couldn't find all the places to modify):

Allow Xmosaic to read symbolic links as URL's

That is, allow files like the following:

mosaic-docs ->
cave.html ->

This would simplify the storage of bookmarks and allow a user to
organize their local hierarchy appropriate to the information resources
that they had identified, e.g. collecting URL's about a specific subject
or concept area.

I did an initial hack to the code to allow the interpretation of
symbolic links, but would like to see this extension permeated
throughout the code (i.e. saving, etc..)
