I'm a little concerned by the comment
"symlinks alse need some bytes, don't link under 10 bytes"
Files occupy a multiple of 4K bytes. So replacing a 1-byte file with a symlink
will usually save 4KB. Occasionally it will bump the directory size by 4KB so
there is no saving.
I suggest symlinking should be unconditional.
Cheers ... Duncan.
