 This is a patch to mythrename.pl to add a '--hardlink' option.  When
 scanning an NFS share over the network with a device such as a Popcorn
 Hour, symbolic linked files will list in the directory contents, but can't
 be played (retrieved) due to the way NFS handles (or doesn't handle)
 symbolic links.  The patch adds a new option '--hardlink' to the
 mythrename.pl script that works exactly the same as the '--link' option,
 only it creates/deletes hard links instead of symbolic links.
