[PATCH] Re: "Too many links"

I have an updated version of this patch about done that I'll be
committing.  I kept the %02x/%02x/* directory structure (not sure why I
didn't do that from the beginning... I lose), but I also made it detect
when it hits the max link count, and upgrade as needed (4 hex dirs -> 2
hex dirs) to make room for the new directory.   There's also an option to
upgrade everything at once, but that takes a bit longer (still not
so bad).

Thanks for the patch!
