Do note that extracting a zipfile with symlinks might lead to unexpected results, for example if the path pointed to is outside of the extract dir.

Maybe the behaviour introduced in this patch should not be the default, but instead `extract` and `extractall` could take a new flag `preserve_symlinks` which would default to False? (to keep the same default as today)
