Subject: Please document isSymbolicLink
With the recent changes regarding Archive::Zip::Member::extractToFileHandle it is necessary to know whether a member is a normal file or a symlink, and handle appropriately (in my special case (checking the integrity of the zip file) this is: skip the symlinks). I see in the source code that isSymbolicLink exists, but unfortunately it is not documented. It would be nice if it was mentioned, along to isTextFile and isDirectory.
