It is useful to have directory local `vc-follow-symlinks` with value

That seems reasonable.  Does anybody else object to marking this
variable as a safe file variable?

Sounds good to me.

I've tried to imagine a security issue stemming from it (e.g. linking to an external directory tree with its own dir-locals values, and then... what?), but didn't really come up with anything significant.
