Re: extension support

OK, thanks for your vote.
Blayne extension support

I would also like to officially ask for this. SFTP servers backed by HDFS via NFS Gateway do not support hard links and thus cannot service the rename command. The extension provides an alternative renaming method that does not result in an NFS LINK command, but instead, an NFS RENAME command.

Re: Support for extension

Thanks for your suggestion.
Will see if more people ask for this.

Support for extension

It would be useful to have an option to make use of the extension when available.

This provides an alternative to the link/remove rename operation which is not supported on all file systems. In addition, it prevents the scenario where a link is successful and delete fails, leaving two files on the system.
