Our updater patch (#4234) adds support for handling symlinks during MAR file generation and in the updater itself. The original reason for adding this feature was to support meek's use of a second browser for its HTTP tunnel; see #12647.

We no longer use symlinks on any platform. Kathy and I think we should remove the symlink portions of the #4234 patch (smaller patches == good).
