[Rd] unlink in 1.2

I see the default behavior of unlink  with respect to directories is changing in
1.2. This causes me a certain amount of difficulty: since the recursive argument
is not supported in S I will need to start building up my compatibility library
again (which is almost empty now).

Instead of changing unlink's default behavior it might be better to define a new
function (perhaps Sys.rm) with the new default behavior, and possibly even
depreciate unlink.
