 If you have a FileInfo which points to a dangling symlink, the Delete()
 function doesn't remove the link.  Non-dangling links are correctly
 removed, however.
 This is probably due to unlink(2) returning ENOENT on dangling symlinks.

+err, no, ENOENT is only returned if a portion of the path passed in is
+broken.  I think it should work otherwise.
