Bug Description

When you symlink a Blosxom post into another directory, the post appears twice in the blog

When you symlink a Blosxom post into another directory, the post appears twice in the blog. This isn't the behavior that users would expect. What they expect, I think, is that Blosxom will spot the duplicate post and just classify it under two different categories.

From there, there are multiple appropriate behaviors. The $blosxom::path variable might have to stay the same, but maybe there could be a @blosxom::paths list that contains all the categories. Ultimately, I think users will want to provide links in their posts to all the categories from which the post comes.

But in any case, duplicating posts is the wrong idea. It shouldn't be hard to spot duplicates; just use something like realpath(3).
