i think that the most reasonable default behavior would be to keep relative symlink that resolve inside the archive, and to dereference those that are not included. (i'm aware that this is not currently implemented in the regular zip utility, but it might be a good idea to implement that as an option there too.)

it would be nice to have a configuration option; in situations in which the files to be compressed are known, that could be hidden if simplicity is desired.
