argument for getting Link origins with 'loadEntity()' / 'synapseGet()'


Right now the behavior by default (which is fine) is that if you loadEntity() on a Link, you just get the Link entity. Would be nice if you could add a flag, e.g. 'linkOrigin = TRUE', or something like that if you want the origin of bringing down the actual entity that's linked to.

Erich: My understanding is that we are moving Synapse toward use Files, Folders, and Records and away from the legacy entities which, I assume, includes Links. Do you feel that Links should be promoted along with Files, Folders and Records?
