Symlinks are barely supported by distutils; the only mention you can find in the doc is that the MANIFEST file can contain symlinks.  In the light of that, one could argue that broken symlinks are not supported nor ignored, and that you just should not have them.  Is there a valid use case for having broken symlinks in a Python project?

(About versions: I’m removing 2.6 which only gets security fixes, and adding 3.x to add regression tests to them, even if the bug isn’t there now.)
