Any reason why gnupload sends symlink: prior to rmsymlink: commands, even
when the are specified the other way around on the command line?  The net
result is that the just-created symlink is nuked, rather than the intended
removal of the old link and recreation of the same name pointing to a new

$ ./build-aux/gnupload --dry-run --to ftp.gnu.org:m4 \
 --rmsymlink m4-latest.tar.bz2 \
 --symlink m4-1.4.14.tar.bz2 m4-latest.tar.bz2
Enter GPG passphrase:
File eblake-16107.directive:
version: 1.1
directory: m4
comment: gnupload v. 2010-02-08.07
symlink: m4-1.4.14.tar.bz2 m4-latest.tar.bz2
rmsymlink: m4-latest.tar.bz2
Running gpg --batch --no-tty --passphrase-fd 0 --clearsign
Running ncftpput ftp-upload.gnu.org /incoming/ftp

Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
