Description

=begin
I wrote a method for FileUtils to do recursive hard linking. It works just like cp_r but links instead of copies.

The code can be found along with the pull request I made to ruby/ruby on Github:

http://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/4#issuecomment-631067

It's a pretty handy method for "staging" read-only files. For example I've used it to stage test fixture files in a tmp testing location and I've used it collect together a set of files for packaging into a tarball.
